Independent Insurance trial delayed by two weeks

The trial of the three former directors of failed UK insurance company
Independent Insurance has been pushed back by two weeks and will now be heard
from Wednesday 30 May, according to sources.

Administrative issues have forced the change to the original trial date at
Southwark Crown Court, which was due to begin on Monday.

The company’s former finance director, Dennis Lomas, has been charged with
conspiracy to defraud, as has former chairman Michael Bright and former deputy
managing director Philip Condon.

Sister titles to Accountancy Age, Post Magazine, Reinsurance
Magazine, Professional Broking and Insurance Age have established an online
service dedicated to the forthcoming trial.
