The former Anglo Irish Bank secretary, Bernard Daly from Collins Avenue West, appeared before Judge O’Donnell in the Dublin District Court after he was arrested on Chancery Street at 1pm on the 19 November, with four arrest warrants hanging over him.

In court it was heard that he replied “not guilty” to each charge after being cautioned by the Garda.

The four arrest warrants are related to his time spent at the bank as an executive acting as the company secretary. He was appointed to the position in 2003 and resigned four years later.

Solicitor Tom Browne stated that the Director of Public Prosecution was seeking an adjournment until February until Mr Daly and the co accused, Mr Tiarnan O’Mahoney, could both be present to hear the evidence against them in court.

The former banker was remanded on bail and has to sign on weekly at a Garda station.

Judge O’Donnell ordered that nothing be published that prejudice the accused or the pending trial of three other former Anglo executives.
