We’re not saying these headlines are connected, but they are interesting, and they will provoke Soros haters.Last week: George Soros gives $100 million to the group Human Rights Watch.
Yesterday: A European human rights court may review and expunge George Soros’ 2002 insider trading conviction resulting from a trade in the late 80s in shares of Societe Generale.
The conviction only resulted in a tiny fine, so his desire to get it expunged is purely a matter of principle and pride.
Still, interesting to see an EU human rights court — not where you’d expect an insider trading case to wind up — provide him relief.
