The trial of the man accused of the £26.5m (€33.9m) Northern Bank robbery was adjourned today.
Chris Ward, aged 26, will reappear at Belfast Crown Court tomorrow following discussions between lawyers in the case.
Prosecution lawyer Gordon Kerr QC asked Mr Justice McLaughlin: "Progress has been made; however... we ask you to rise today and sit again tomorrow morning."
Ward, from Colinmill, Poleglass, near west Belfast, denies charges of robbery and two counts of abducting banker Kevin McMullan and his wife Kyran in December 2004.
The defendant was in court, dressed in a dark suit, but made no comment following several hours of private deliberations among legal counsel.
