A decision on whether a brother of Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams is to be extradited to the North to face charges of sexual abuse has been postponed.

Liam Adams, 55, is wanted by the PSNI over allegations that he sexually abused his daughter between March 1977 and March 1983. The 55-year-old handed himself in to police in Dublin last year after a European Arrest Warrant was issued by the PSNI.

Yesterday (Wednesday), a judge in Dublin delayed his decision, saying he would probably rule on the extradition application on Monday.

Mr Adams’ legal team is contesting his extradition for a variety of reasons including wide pre-trial publicity.
