UK judge refuses Barclays’ request

LONDON — A British court has rejected an attempt by Barclays to shield the names of more than 100 present and former employees of the bank allegedly involved in manipulating a key interest rate index or who for other reasons came to the attention of investigators.

Justice Julian Flaux ruled Thursday that granting anonymity would be an ‘‘affront to the principle of open justice.’’ He noted that many names, including former chief executive Bob Diamond, were already on the public record.
