U.S. said to plan charges against ex-JPMorgan employees in bank records scandal

A former executive and a former trader could face charges in connection with the “London Whale” scandal

The U.S. may announce criminal charges as early as this week against former JPMorgan Chase & Co. employees in connection with allegations they tried to conceal losses last year.

Two former JPMorgan employees, executive Javier Martin-Artajo and trader Julien Grout, could face charges of falsifying bank records. A third former employee, trader Bruno Iksil, is cooperating with the government. According to Bloomberg, a person familiar with the matter says the situation remains fluid, and it isn’t currently clear who may ultimately be charged.
