THE jury in the trial of three former Anglo Irish Bank executives will begin deliberations for a fourth day today.

Former chairman Sean FitzPatrick (65), from Greystones, Co Wicklow; William McAteer (63), of Rathgar in Dublin; and Pat Whelan (51), of Malahide, Co Dublin deny 10 counts of providing unlawful financial assistance to Anglo clients – the so-called Maple 10 – in July 2008 to buy shares in Anglo.

The loan-for-shares deal involved unwinding Sean Quinn's secret 29pc stake in the bank, built up through contracts for difference.
