Former solicitor Michael Lynn who is accused of multi-million euro thefts was in court today as part of preparations for his trial next year.

Mr Lynn (50) with an address in St Alban's Park, Sandymount, Dublin, is facing 21 charges relating to the alleged theft of almost €30 million from seven financial institutions.

In one of the sample charges before the court, Mr Lynn is accused of stealing €4.1 million from Irish Nationwide on April 4, 2007.

In another sample count, he is charged with stealing €3.6 million from Ulster Bank on October 20, 2006.

In March 2018 Mr Lynn was extradited to Ireland from Brazil, where he had been living for several years.

He was taken into custody in Brazil in August 2013. In June last year he was granted bail on an independent surety of €100,000.

His trial at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court is fixed for January 13, 2020. A pre-trial date was set for November 28, 2019.

Mr Lynn appeared in court today when John Berry BL, prosecuting, told the court that the DPP had now completed 56 categories of disclosure sought by the defence.

Counsel said there were some outstanding matters and asked the court to fix a date for a one hour hearing.

Padraig Dwyer SC, defending, told Judge Patricia Ryan that a lot of work has being done “behind the scenes” by the defense lawyers.
