Ex-Galleon Employee Now With Jabre Surprised By Inclusion On Witness List

Mar 14 2011 | 2:01pm ET

Unsurprisingly, more than a few Galleon Group and former Galleon Group employees appear on a list of possible witnesses in the insider-trading trial of firm founder Raj Rajaratnam. But the appearance of Robert Harrington among the 112 potential witnesses certainly surprised Harrington himself.

Harrington, who now works at hedge fund Jabre Capital Partners in Geneva, Switzerland, said that neither he nor his new firm had been contacted by either the prosecution or by Rajaratnam's defense team.

"No one from any organization or entity has contacted me about this issue," he told MarketWatch. And neither the U.S. Attorney's office nor Rajaratnam's legal team would comment on Harrington's appearance on the list.

Philippe Riachi, a managing partner at Jabre Capital, also told MarketWatch he hadn't heard anything about Harrington.

"We have not had any regulator conduct an investigation," he said.

Harrington left Galleon in 2007, the same year that Philippe Jabre, a former star trader at GLG Partners, founded his eponymous hedge fund.
