Four people have been charged in connection with the collapse of Patisserie Valerie – a bakery chain that had almost 200 stores.
The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) said this follows an investigation that began in October 2018 – just two days after the company abruptly suspended trading, with more than 900 jobs lost.
Christopher Marsh, who formerly served as Patisserie Holdings’ chief financial officer, is among those facing charges.
His accountant wife Louise – as well as financial controller Pritesh Mistry and financial consultant Nileshkumar Lad – have also been charged.
