Erm.. What on earth was the former head of European equity derivatives trading at Credit Suisse doing risking his entire reputation for £20,000 from a student? I know the credit crunch has hit pretty hard, but that's just ridiculous!

Wait. £20,000? What is a STUDENT doing with £20,000? He could get a private tutor for the whole year, not even attend the lectures and do well for that amount of money!

Jeese, it's crazy that some people will stretch this far!

I think jail for the banker is not harsh, if he's capable of committing crime against a University, he's capable of other crimes.

Stupid.

Jesus, I meant fraud. Such things as stolen goods perhaps? He clearly has the mind set of having no morals. If he's a banker he could take money out of peoples accounts without them knowing.

Great find - I wonder if he'd have done well on the exams or not. I'd also love to know how on earth some random student managed to get someone like him to do this???

"City life

Drean rose to prominence with Bank of America, where he was its London-based head of Equity Financial Products Trading in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

In April 2007, he joined Credit Suisse, again in a senior position. He specialised in dealing in equity derivatives, a type of financial products.

But on May 21, only five weeks into the new job, he resigned – eight days after the end of the exam cheating conspiracy.

Within three months, he made his first appearance before York Crown Court."

He is the son of Marlen Askerov, the vice president of AzerEnerji, a major power generation and transmission company. He is a billionaire and is a major political player.
