Belfast property magnate in multi-million pound legal action against bank
Belfast property magnate Peter Curistan is alleging fraud in his multi-million pound legal action against the former Anglo Irish Bank, the High Court has heard.
The developer, who built the city’s Odyssey entertainment complex, is also claiming breach of duty and negligence over the process to find a buyer for his long-term lease in the venue.
His case against the defendant, now known as the Irish Bank Resolution Corporation, may see a Northern Ireland judge travel to Dublin to hear some evidence.
Mr Curistan is suing in a personal capacity after previous litigation was brought in the name of Sheridan Millennium, a company he ran before it went into administration in 2011.
