Four British men - including a man believed to be a lord - have been 
accused of trying to steal 220million by hacking into a Japanese bank's 
computer system, the Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca) said today.

Hugh Rodley, from Tewkesbury, in Gloucestershire, named locally as Lord 
Hugh Rodley, is alleged to have targeted the London offices of Sumitomo 
Matsui Banking Corporation.

His fellow accused are David Nash, 47, from Durrington, in West Sussex, 
Kevin O'Donoghue, 33, from Birmingham, and Bernard Davies, 73, from 
Walton-on-Thames, in Surrey. 

Nash, O'Donoghue and Davies appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court in east 
London yesterday but Rodley did not attend due to ill health. All four 
are yet to enter pleas.

A spokesman at Soca said police from the e-crime unit launched 
investigations in October 2004.

The alleged plan involved the electronic transfer of money from Sumitomo 
Matsui to a series of accounts around the world. Soca said the alleged 
plot was uncovered before the money was moved.

The four men are charged with conspiracy to defraud, conspiracy to 
steal, conspiracy to transfer criminal property and conspiracy to remove 
criminal property from England and Wales between January 1 and October 5 
2004.

Gloucestershire Police confirmed they assisted with the investigation at 
Rodley's home at Tudor Manor, in Church End, near Tewkesbury - where he 
and his wife have lived for 16 years.

Judge Martyn Zeidman QC adjourned the case until May 30 at Snaresbrook 
Crown Court.
