The husband and wife – also known as Siew Yoon Lew and Angie Lew – have been bailed to attend City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court on April 6 2010.
The offences relate to trading in a number of different London Stock Exchange and AIM listed shares between 2000 and 2009.
In addition a third suspect has been arrested in Mayotte, a French overseas territory in the Comoros Islands.
The third suspect – a 33 year-old Singaporean national – was arrested by the French authorities in Mayotte following a European Arrest Warrant issued by City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court at the request of the FSA.
He is due to appear before a local court later this week in relation to a request for extradition to the UK to face charges of insider dealing.
This is the first time that the FSA has sought the extradition of a suspect from abroad to face criminal charges in the UK.
