Disgraced tycoon Allen Stanford on ‘storm from hell’

Disgraced tycoon Allen Stanford, currently serving a 110-year prison sentence for his role in one of the biggest Ponzi schemes in US history, has given his first interview since 2009.

The Texan banker rose to prominence outside the US when he bankrolled international cricket competitions in the UK and Caribbean, but became the subject of several fraud investigations and, on 17 February, 2009 was charged with investment fraud worth $7bn (£4.5bn).
