Hedge Fund Boss' Employees Learned How to Cover Up Trades, Says Witness
Wednesday, March 30, 2011
In his second day of testimony, ex-trader Adam Smith testified that Raj Rajaratnam's employees at Galleon Group learned how to disguise trades to make them seem legitimate.
Smith told the Manhattan jury on Wednesday that the moves were masked by purchasing and selling many trades right before a large public announcement was made. This was to give the appearance that they were unsure of the future of the company, if government agencies ever ask.
Smith has plead guilty last year to insider trading and agreed to tap phone calls in a sweeping Wall Street probe.
