Seán FitzPatrick's High Court application to have his criminal trial delayed has been successful - it will now go ahead in May 25, 2016 instead of October.
Judge Moriarty made his ruling on the case in the High Court this afternoon. He said the requirements of justice necessitated the deferral.
The 66-year-old former Anglo Irish Bank chairman (pictured), with an address at Whitshed road in Greystones, faces 27 charges including making a misleading, false or deceptive statement to auditors and of furnishing false information from 2002 to 2007.
He has pleaded not guilty to all the charges.
