Date set for Bridgecorp trial

12:28 pm on 7 September 2011

Five former heads of the failed finance company Bridgecorp will go to trial next month after a series of delays.

The company collapsed in 2007 owing investors more than $450 million.

The trial had been scheduled to start on Monday but was postponed because one of the directors, Rob Roest, was still arranging legal aid.

He and three other defendants now have representation though former chief executive, Rod Petricevic, says he is still seeking a lawyer.

Justice Venning has scheduled the trial for 10 October.
