Fitzpatrick's wife to be listed as creditor in bankruptcy case

Fitzpatrick's wife to be listed as creditor in bankruptcy case

Bankrupt former Anglo Irish chief Sean Fitzpatrick is due back before the High Court today over his debts.

He owes €110m to the bank and further sums to AIB, Bank of Scotland and Friend's First.

Even Mr Fitzpatrick's wife Catriona is expected to be listed as one of his creditors when the case comes back before the High Court today.

However 92% of his debts are owed to his former employer the now State-owned Anglo Irish Bank.

It is understood the bank will not try have their own trustee appointed in place of the official assignee, a move that would have given them greater control in realising Mr Fitzpatrick's assets.

These include his share of the family home, his pension and property interests abroad.

The official assignee Chris Lehane is expected to apply to the court to nullify any transactions carried out by Mr Fitzpatrick in the two years prior to his being declared bankrupt that reduced the value of his assets.
