He is set to face charges over a €80m debt

Former solicitor Michael Lynn has appeared in court this evening 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.
