Grounds of objection being raised by Liam Adams over an attempt by authorities in the North to extradite him on sex abuse charges are "ready" and will be lodged before the High Court at the end of this week.
Today lawyers for Mr Adams, the brother of Sinn Féin president Gerry Adams, told Mr Justice Michael Peart, sitting at Dublin's Criminal Courts of Justice, that their clients "points of objection" to a surrender request from the North would be filed on Friday.
Judge Peart adjourned the matter until June 23, when the High Court "may" be in a position to fix a date for the case to be heard.
Mr Adams (aged 54) with a previous address at Bernagh Avenue in Belfast, was in court for today's brief hearing.
He is wanted in the North to face multiple charges of rape, indecent assault and gross indecency against his daughter, Aine Tyrell, who has waived her right to anonymity.
Liam Adams denies all the charges and is contesting his extradition.
It is claimed the offences occurred at various addresses in Belfast between March 1977 and March 1983 when the alleged victim was aged between four and 10 years. It is alleged some of the offences occurred when Ms Tyrell's mother was out of the family's house.
Mr Adams turned himself into gardaí in Dublin early this year after a European Arrest Warrant was issued by the PSNI.
He has already denied he fled the North a year ago to escape prosecution but claims he feared he and his children were in danger after media reports of the allegations.
Mr Adams also maintains he will not get a fair trial.
