Barings bondholders will be in court today to argue that they should be able to resist the Serious Fraud Office's decision to take over their private prosecution of the former Barings trader, Nick Leeson.

The bondholders, who lost pounds 100m in the bank's collapse, argue that Leeson should be tried in the UK rather than Singapore.
