No trial set for man accused of indecently assaulting young men over judicial review

The trial date of a retired consultant surgeon accused of indecently assaulting young men over a 26-year period will not be set until after the result of a High Court judicial review.

Dr Michael Shine, who is 82, faces charges at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court of indecent assault against 22 alleged victims dating back to 1964.

Judge Mary Ellen Ring adjourned the matter again after she was informed that Dr Shine's legal team are still awaiting judgment from the High Court and there is no indication when it will be delivered.

Dr Shine of Wellington House, Wellington Road, Dublin 4, is charged with 25 counts of indecent assault which allegedly occurred from 1964 until 1990 at Our Lady's Hospital in Drogheda and at a clinic in Co Louth.
