Former deputy director of public prosecutions, Hugh Wildman, has joined the prosecution’s team in the billion-dollar Appliance Traders Limited (ATL) pension fund trial.
Lead prosecutor RNA Henriques told the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court this morning that Wildman will replace attorney-at-law Gayle Nelson who has been absent because of illness.
Former chairman of the ATL Pension Fund, Patrick Lynch, and the former general manager of the fund, Catherine Barber, along with former managing director of Gorstew Limited, Dr Jeffrey Pyne, are on trial for allocating more than $1.7 billion to members of the scheme without Gorstew's consent and using four forged letters to justify the allocation.
