The trial of two ex-Anglo executives over an alleged fraudulent loan of over €8m will start in 2017.
William McAteer, aged 64, is accused of fraudulently obtaining a loan from Anglo Irish Bank to pay off a personal loan with Bank of Ireland in September 2008. Pat Whelan, aged 52, is accused of being a party to the same loan.
Yesterday, Dublin Circuit Criminal Court heard that both intended to plead not guilty. Judge Mary Ellen Ring set a date of January 16, 2017, for the trial.
