Jailed former National Finance director Trevor Ludlow has appealed a refusal to grant him bail ahead of his full appeal hearing into his six year and four month sentence.

Ludlow had pleaded guilty to theft and false accounting after the finance company's 2006 collapse.  He received five years and seven months before he then pleaded guilty to eight Securities Act charges and got a nine month term added.

He asked the Court of Appeal for bail to allow him to prepare for a full appeal next year.

Acting for himself from Springhill prison via videolink, he said he did not have access to things like a fax or computer and filing things the court needed would be easier if he was on bail.

He denied being a flight risk or that he was likely to reoffend.

The Crown had opposed his appeal.

The Court reserved its decision.
