Former executives appear in Irish bank trial

Bank chiefs are accused of giving unlawful financial assistance to individuals in 2008 to boost the bank's share price.

    Three former bankers have appeared in court in Ireland to face charges relating to the country's banking collapse. 

    The three former chiefs of Anglo Irish Bank are charged with helping to unlawfully prop up the bank's share price in 2008.
     
    It is only the second time that bankers involved in the financial crisis have been brought to criminal trial in Europe.
