R v Goldshield Group plc and others [2008] UKHL 17; [2008] WLR (D) 388

An allegation of price fixing carried out in circumstances of secretive and deceptive behaviour was insufficient of itself to found a charge of conspiracy to defraud. It was necessary to isolate and charge specific aggravating elements which would elevate price fixing into an indictable conspiracy to defraud.”
