Quinn 'instructed children to protect assets from Anglo'

The High Court has heard from bankrupt businessman Sean Quinn that he gave his children instructions to protect their assets from Anglo Irish Bank.

Mr Quinn claims the bank, now known as IBRC, bullied him out of his business and destroyed his reputation.

In one of several outbursts in court, he said that he is trying to see if there is anything else he can do with his life, saying that he is 65 and the bank has taken his dignity.

The former billionaire, his son and nephew all deny breaching a court order from last summer prohibiting the Quinns from disposing of their valuable international assets.
