Three mortgage brokers, along with a solicitor and two property valuers, are set to stand trial for an alleged £1m mortgage fraud.
It is alleged that between May 2003 and October 2008 the six defendants conspired together or with others to obtain mortgage finance by submitting false statements of income and other documents, according to the Daily Post.
Twelve jurors were today selected at Mold Crown Court, North Wales, and Judge Rhys Rowlands then adjourned the case and said prosecution would open its case on 16 January.
The defendants include Antony Lowry-Huws, 63; Sheila Rose Whalley, 66; valuer Frank Edward Darlington, 60; valuer George Walker, 58; Susan Margaret Lowry-Huws, 59; and solicitor Nicholas John Jones, 53. All of the defendants have pleaded not guilty to conspiring to defraud and conspiring to falsify documents.
The trial is expected to last around four months.
