THE FORMER CHAIRMAN and chief executive of Anglo Irish Bank has today been charged in connection with alleged financial irregularities at the now defunct bank.
Seán FitzPatrick, 64, appeared in court in Dublin today charged with 16 offences under section 60 of the Companies Act. After a preliminary hearing, FitzPatrick was remanded on bail to appear again before the court in October.
After he left the court there was a considerable media scramble but the former banker made no comment as he departed in a waiting taxi.
Here is a video from outside the court. Apologies for the poor quality:
