JUST OVER 24 hours after appearing in court where he was charged with 16 counts of giving unlawful financial assistance to clients, former chair and chief executive of Anglo Irish Bank Seán FitzPatrick signed on at a garda station for the first time.
In what will become a weekly ritual as part of his bail conditions, FitzPatrick signed on at Irishtown Garda station yesterday evening. The bail conditions also require him to give 48 hours notice if he intends to change his address in Greystones or go abroad.
The 64-year-old arrived at the garda station shortly before 5pm yesterday and spent around five minutes inside before leaving in a silver Mercedes being driven by another person.
FitzPatrick is due again at the Criminal Courts of Justice in October before the case is expected to go before a judge and jury at the Circuit Court.
