Anglo jury to resume deliberations today

The jury deliberated for six hours yesterday and will resume this morning.

THE JURY IN the trial of three former executives of Anglo Irish Bank will resume their deliberations today.

The seven women and five men spent six hours deliberating yesterday at the Criminal Courts of Justice in Dublin.

They are deliberating whether Seán FitzPatrick, the bank’s former CEO and chairman, Patrick Whelan, the former MD of lending in Ireland for Anglo and William McAteer, the former chief risk officer and finance director are guilty of providing unlawful financial assistance to ten customers of the bank in 2008.

All three deny the charges, while Whelan and McAteer also deny giving illegal loans to six members of the Quinn family.

Before being sent home after six hours yesterday, the jury asked for copies of the evidence given by Anglo’s former Chief Financial Officer, Matt Moran, and the bank’s former Head of Group Compliance, Fiachra O’Neill.

The jury had earlier asked for copies of the loan documents given to Patricia Quinn.
