SFO's 'monocle vision' in bringing case - Eric Evans

A multi-million pound legal bill racked-up in a failed case against six people accused of a fraud conspiracy is to be paid by the Serious Fraud Office.

The men included lawyer and ex-Cardiff City chief executive Alan Whiteley, and former Celtic Energy directors Richard Walters and Leighton Humphreys.

They had been accused of conspiracy to defraud the Coal Authority, Neath Port Talbot, Bridgend, and Powys councils.

But the case was dismissed and the judge said no law had been broken.

One of those accused back in 2011 was solicitor Eric Evans, who gave his reaction to BBC Wales business correspondent Brian Meechan.
