Blues ask for shares suspension

PLC shares to be temporarily suspended 'pending an announcement'

Birmingham City have asked for their PLC shares to be temporarily suspended 'pending an announcement'.

On Wednesday, the club confirmed that co-owner David Sullivan and managing director Karren Brady had been arrested by City of London Police.

As part of their ongoing investigation into alleged football corruption, the police confirmed that two people had been arrested 'on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud and false accounting'.

Birmingham, who were raided last month as part of the same inquiry, then released a statement confirming Sullivan and Brady were cooperating with the police.

A statement issued by the London Stock Exchange's "Aim" index read:

"At the request of the company trading on Aim for the under-mentioned

securities has been temporarily suspended from 10/04/2008 7.30am, pending an announcement."
