An ex-Anglo Irish Bank official jailed for conspiring to conceal bank accounts from the Revenue Commissioners has been refused bail pending the outcome of his appeal in January.
67-year-old Bernard Daly of Collins Avenue West, Whitehall, Dublin, had pleaded not guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to furnishing false information and conspiring to defraud the Revenue Commissioners, as well as conspiring to delete accounts from the bank's internal system.
He was found guilty by a jury and jailed for two years by Judge Patrick McCartan on July 31.
Lawyer's for Daly, who was the bank's former company secretary, told the Court of Appeal today that his trial was unfair from beginning to end and gave seven grounds for appeal.
The appeal date has been fixed for January 11.
