On January 7, the UK Financial Services Authority (FSA) charged Neil Rollins at the City of Westminster Magistrates' Court with insider dealing and money laundering offenses.  

The FSA alleges that Mr. Rollins disposed of approximately 74,000 shares of PM Group plc between August and September 2006 while in possession of inside information and that he encouraged Louisa Rollins to deal in shares in the Group. The money laundering charges relate to the transfer of criminal property on various dates in November 2006 to an account in the name of David Rollins while knowing or suspecting that it represented the proceeds of insider trading.  

The Magistrates Court held that the case was suitable for trial before the Crown Court, and proceedings were adjourned until February 18.
