On 27 August 2020, Ananda Kathiravelu, of Perth, WA appeared before the Supreme Court of Western Australia and pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to commit an offence of market manipulation.

ASIC alleged that between 12 May 2016 and 17 May 2016, Mr Kathiravelu conspired with another to take part in, or carry out, whether directly or indirectly, transactions that had or were likely to have the effect of creating or maintaining an artificial price for Radar Iron Limited (Radar) shares traded on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX).

The offence carries a maximum penalty of ten years’ imprisonment or a fine of up to 4,500 penalty units ($810,000), or both.

A sentencing hearing date has yet to be set.

The Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions is prosecuting the matter.
