Former media baron Conrad Black says he is confident a jury will clear him of fraud at his upcoming trial in the United States. Black and three other former executives of his Hollinger International media empire are due to stand trial later this month in Chicago, charged with looting US$80 million (€60 million) from shareholders. They deny wrongdoing. "I know I am innocent of the allegations against me, as does almost anyone who actually knows me, and I am about to prove it," Black wrote in an article published in Tatler magazine. Excerpts from the article, which hits newsstands Thursday, were released Tuesday. "I have never had the slightest doubt of the outcome of a fair trial, knowing that the judgment of the legality of my actions will lie in the hands of 12 American citizens, in one of that country's greatest cities, more or less at the bar of Abraham Lincoln and Clarence Darrow," he wrote.
