The jury in the trial of former Anglo Irish Bank chief executive David Drumm is expected to hear an opening speech from the prosecution tomorrow morning.

The 15 jurors were sworn in at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court last month. 

The trial has been in legal argument since 11 January.

Mr Drumm has pleaded not guilty to being involved in an alleged €7.2bn conspiracy to defraud and to dishonestly furnishing false information to the market.

He denied conspiring with Denis Casey, William McAteer, John Bowe and others, to defraud, by engaging in transactions between Anglo, Irish Life and Permanent and Irish Life Assurance, to mislead investors, depositors and lenders, about the true value of deposits to Anglo in 2008.

He also denied furnishing false information to the market giving the impression that deposits from non-banks to Anglo were €7.2bn greater than they actually were.

Judge Karen O'Connor was told last month that the trial could take up to five months and could hear from almost 100 witnesses.
