Hollinger exec to appear in court
Former Hollinger International CEO Conrad Black says he will appear in court to answer "smear charges" against him, according to an article in today's Chicago Sun-Times.
A federal indictment issued last week, claims that Black stole millions of dollars from Hollinger, through fake fees and by such actions as "using the corporate jet for a vacation in Bora Bora and dipping into the Hollinger treasury to pay for his wife's birthday party."
Hollinger was the parent company of American Publishing, which at one time owned the Carthage Press and the Neosho Daily News.
