Ex-Anglo boss summons ex-pals

THE former head of lending at Anglo Irish Bank is seeking to subpoena some of its former executives, including chairman Sean Fitzpatrick (right) and CEO David Drumm, for his defence of the bank's claim for €50m judgment orders against him.

Tom Browne may also subpoena bankrupt businessman Sean Quinn and Irish Times journalist Simon Carswell, author of the book Anglo Republic, for the trial of the action against him at the Commercial Court in October, Mr Justice Peter Kelly was told yesterday.

The judge was dealing with pre-trial management issues arising from the action by Irish Bank Resolution Corporation (formerly Anglo) against Mr Browne, which is set for hearing in October.
