It is understood the sacked men are traders Paul White and Neil Danziger, investment adviser Andrew Hamilton and Tan Chi Min, who used to work for RBS in Singapore.
Former Royal Bank of Scotland chairman Sir George Matthewson told the BBC today that the sacking of four RBS traders was the "correct response" but that it also raised many questions. Mr Matthewson said:
Royal Bank of Scotland sacked four of its traders at the end of last year over their alleged role in the Libor-fixing scandal, sources said. Two of the traders were removed from their posts in October and a third the following month. RBS has not commented on the sackings.
The revelation comes after the bank confirmed it is being investigated for manipulating the rates at which banks lend to each other.
