FitzPatrick appears in Dublin Criminal Court
Former Anglo Irish Bank boss Sean FitzPatrick has made his first appearance at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.
With him in court were the former Anglo Finance Director Willie McAteer and former Managing Director of Anglo Ireland, Patrick Whelan.
All three are charged with providing unlawful financial assistance to members of the Quinn family and the so called Maple Ten of Irish investors in 2008 to enable them to buy shares in Anglo Irish Bank.
Judge Martin Nolan granted orders relating to witnesses and exhibits in the case before putting it back until January 23, when it will be mentioned before the court again.
