07/06/16 09:20 AMAfter Beating Insider Trading Allegations, Spanish Man Indicted On Perjury Charges - A Spanish man who made headlines in 2012 when he obtained dismissal of civil insider trading charges brought by the Securities and Exchange Commission was recently indicted on allegations that he obstructed that very investigation by lying under oath.  Luis Martin-Caro Sanchez, a Spanish citizen and resident of Madrid, Spain, was indicted last week on two charges of perjury and one count of obstruction of justice stemming from what authorities believe were untruthful and obstructionist actions he took during the Commission's investigation of potential insider trading arising from BHP Billiton's ("BHP") unsuccessful 2010 takeover offer to Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan ("Potash").   While a federal judge dismissed the civil insider trading charges in late 2011 for a lack of evidence, these allegations now suggest that the Commission's suspicions were well-founded.  It is expected that authorities will seek to extradite Sanchez to the U.S. to be arraigned.  Sanchez faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted of the obstruction charges, while each perjury charges carries a maximum 5-year term.
