Aussie stockbroker accused of fraud and betrayal

THE year was 2009 and the two young suits, one from Australia and the other New Zealand, were living in the concrete jungle of Manhattan.

They were great mates, due to the many links Aussies and Kiwi expatriates share.

The Australian, Trent Martin, was 30 years old at the time and working as a researcher for a global financial firm located a short commute north to Stamford, in the neighbouring state of Connecticut.

The New Zealander was a rising star at a large Manhattan-based corporate law firm known for putting together multibillion-dollar merger and acquisition deals.

US prosecutors have codenamed him ''Attorney-1'' and say his testimony could send Martin and two other New York stockbrokers to US federal prison for more than 20 years.
