insider dealing
Insider Dealing is an offence under Part V of the Criminal Justice Act 1993. An individual who has information as an insider is guilty of insider dealing if on a regulated market or relying on or acting as a professional intermediary, he deals in securities that are price affected securities in relation to the information. It is an offence to encourage others to do so or to give the information to another. There are various defences and complex issues of interpretation which qualify the offence.
