THE trial of former Anglo Irish Bank chairman Sean FitzPatrick on charges of failing to disclose loans from another bank will proceed next Monday.

Mr FitzPatrick (66) of Whitshed Road, Greystones, Co. Wicklow is charged under Section 197 of the Companies Act 1990.

His trial had been due to commence this morning, but will now proceed on Monday April 20, 2015 at 10am in Court 7 at the Criminal Courts of Justice.

Mr FitzPatrick, who attended court this morning, was charged in the District Court with 12 counts of failing to disclose to auditors Ernst & Young the true value of loans worth at least €139 million given to him or people connected to him, by Irish Nationwide Building Society from 2002 to 2007 while he was an officer of Anglo Irish Bank.

A jury will be sworn in tomorrow morning.
