Deutsche trader under DoJ prosecution, was a long time director of London Gold and Silver Fixings

To spell it out another way, for more than four and a half years from 2009 until 2014, during the same exact same time period as the US Department of Justice is accusing James Vorley of having been “engaged in a years-long conspiracy to defraud other traders on COMEX" by “on numerous occasions, placing Spoofing Orders for COMEX gold, silver, platinum or palladium futures contracts", James Vorley was a director of the LBMA’s London Gold Fixing and London Silver Fixing companies.
