Former solicitor Michael Lynn has appeared in court charged with the theft of just under €30m.

Mr Lynn, formerly of St Albans in Sandymount, Dublin arrived into Dublin Airport on Thursday after being extradited from Brazil.

He was brought to the Dublin District Court despite the bad weather.

The 49-year-old is facing 21 charges under the Theft and Fraud Offences Act, relating to alleged offences in 2006 and 2007.

He was remanded in custody and is due to appear in court again later this month.

The matter was sent forward for trial on March 23rd to the Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

Mr Lynn has been in prison in Brazil for the last five years while he engaged in a legal battle against his extradition back to Ireland.

In a brief statement earlier, Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan said: “I note the return of Mr Lynn. This is now clearly a matter for the courts, and it would be inappropriate for me to make any further comment.”
