David Drumm to make first appearance in Dublin Circuit Criminal Court

David Drumm is due to make his first appearance before Dublin Circuit Criminal Court this morning after being sent forward for trial.

He is facing charges of financial wrongdoing which allegedly took place during his final years as CEO of Anglo Irish Bank.

Last month, Dublin District Court approved a €150,000 bail package for David Drumm following his extradition from Boston.

The DPP directed he be tried before judge and jury on 33 charges, which include forgery, false accounting and conspiracy to defraud.

He was sent forward for trial to the Dublin Circuit Criminal Court and is due to make his first appearance there this morning.

His case is listed as a “new mention” today.

Under existing procedure, guilty pleas are accepted on the first mention date. If that does not happen, the court will fix a date for arraignment when an accused is once again given an opportunity to enter a plea or seek a trial date.

Under his bail conditions, Mr Drumm agreed to live at an address in Skerries, Co Dublin and sign on twice daily at a local garda station.
