From the London Telegraph
he European Court of Human Rights has ruled against Mr Soros in the latest blow to the investor in his nine-year battle to have the conviction overturned.
Mr Soros was found guilty of trading on insider information in the French bank but argued that trading regulations were ambiguous.
In a statement released following the unsuccessful appeal, the Court said that while the law was not precisely worded, investors had a duty to be prudent.
The court said Mr Soros was a "famous institutional investor, well-known to the business community" and "could not have been unaware that his decision to invest in shares in [Societe Generale] entailed the risk that he might be committing the offence of insider trading."
Mr Soros, now 81, was fined the €2.2m (£1.9m) he had made from trading in the French bank's shares.
Not many people know that George Soros was convicted of insider trading.
