Three former top bank officials have appeared in court charged in connection with a E7.2bn fraud.
Former CEO of Irish Life and Permanent Denis Casey, the bank's former finance director Peter Fitzpatrick and former head of treasury at Anglo Irish Bank John Bowe have all been granted bail to appear again next March.
The court was told the men were arrested in Dublin by a detective inspector from the Garda Bureau of Fraud Investigation this morning.
All three replied no when charged at the Bridewell Garda Station, the court heard.
Mr Bowe faces two charges, while Mr Casey and Mr Fitzpatrick each face one charge each.
Each of the accused was granted bail on their own bond of E1,000 and an independent surety of E10,000.
They each have to sign on once a week at a local garda station and notify the gardai if they intend to travel abroad.
