The defendants will appear before Westminster Magistrates' Court on 3 July.

The decision comes after a five-year investigation, with the probe focusing on whether commercial agreements between the bank and Qatari investors at the time of the fundraising were against UK law.

Qatar Holding invested in Barclays between June and October 2008, at the height of the financial crisis, when it was seeking extra cash.

The authorities have been investigating payments from the bank to Qatar around the same period.
