U2 Bassist In Court Over £2.5m Theft

Friday, June 8th 2012 11:00

Adam Clayton will testify against his former PA

Clayton's former personal assistant is on trial for embezzling 2.8 million euro of his personal funds, reports the Daily Mail. 

Carol Hawkins worked for Clayton for 16 years, starting as a housekeeper before being promoted to the role of PA. She apparently earned up to 48,000 euro a year and lived rent free at his home.

She is on trial for 181 counts of stealing cheques from the bass player between 2004 and 2008.

Ms Hakwins denies the charges and the case is expected to last for about six weeks. During that time Clayton, who was present for the start of the trial in Dublin yesterday, will be called as a witness.
