The facilities, the 14-strong jury has heard, were approved by the board of Anglo.

To reduce risk, the facilities were, according to Pat Whelan, former MD of lending (Ireland), secured by Mr Quinn and his children offering full personal recourse for the loans – and ultimately by the bank securing power of attorney over the Quinns' shareholding in the Quinn Group.

This issuing of the facilities and the added security resulted in Anglo assuming control over the Quinn Group, the trial has heard.
