High Court has heard that Console founder Paul Kelly was not able to attend court today because he is an in-patient at a psychiatric unit.

He, along with his wife Patricia and his sister Joan McKenna, is subject to various injunctions preventing them from interfering with the suicide charity.

The court has heard details of what was recovered from a storage unit in Mr Kelly’s name yesterday afternoon.

Patricia Kelly sat at the back of the public gallery on her own as her case was being heard before Mr Justice Paul Gilligan.

The court heard her husband Paul, former CEO and founder of the suicide prevention charity, has been admitted to a psychiatric unit.

His sister Joan McKenna was also absent today but her case was adjourned after Mr Justice Gilligan heard her claim that she was never a director of the charity and had nothing to do it.

In her sworn affidavit, she claims her signature was forged on documents submitted to the Companies Registration Office.

Her case was put back for two weeks to allow for further inquiries.

Last week, the High Court granted Console a wide range of injunctions preventing the trio from accessing the charity’s bank accounts and credit cards.
