Property developer Dave Henderson says emails purporting to show he controlled a bank account and raised loans while a bankrupt do not show the true picture.
Henderson, 60, is under public examination in the High Court in Christchurch before Associate Judge Rob Osborne to decide if he can be discharged from bankruptcy.
He was adjudicated bankrupt in November 2010, with self-acknowledged debts of about $142 million.
The Official Assignee (OA) objects to his discharge and alleges he controlled payments from a bank account in the name of AFB Treasury Ltd and was the key figure in business dealings in breach of his obligations as a bankrupt.
