Sean Fitzpatrick trial to open on October 10

The prosecution in the trial of Anglo Irish Bank’s former chairman Sean Fitzpatrick is due to open its case on October 10.

The 68-year-old denies 27 counts of misleading Anglo’s auditors and furnishing false information to them between 2002 and 2008.

An enlarged jury of 15 was sworn in yesterday but a legal issue will have to be dealt with over the next few weeks before evidence can be heard.

The trial is expected to take up to twelve weeks.
