Gerry ‘The Monk’ Hutch has been further remanded in custody after his case was mentioned before the Special Criminal Court this morning.

The 58-year-old is charged with the murder of David Byrne at the Regency Hotel in Whitehall, Dublin, on February 5, 2016.

He is due to go on trial next year with four co-accused including former Sinn Fein councillor Jonathan Dowdall, who is also charged with murder.

This morning Hutch’s case was listed for mention before the non-jury court.

When the case was called Mr Justice Tony Hunt, presiding, said he gathered there was no application being made and remanded him in custody until the trial date. Mr Justice Hunt said an application can be brought at a later time “if he so wishes”.

Gerard Hutch did not appear in court for the brief hearing and neither side was represented.

The accused, with an address in Clontarf, Dublin 3, is due to go on trial on October 3 next year.

He first appeared in court on September 29 last after being extradited from Spain.

Gerry Hutch was brought before the Special Criminal Court in an armed convoy while there was a significant garda presence in the precincts of the courts complex.

On that day Det Supt Paul Scott, of Ballymun garda station, said he arrested the accused at Baldonell Aerodrome at 7.12pm on foot of the arrest warrant.
