A court in Germany will decide later today on the future of a German businessman accused of sexually assaulting a six-year-old in 1985.

The case in the city of Ulm is making legal history, as it is the first time that an Irish sex abuse case has been heard outside the jurisdiction.

68-year-old millionaire, Dr Andreas Lewicki, is accused of abusing the now 23-year-old on two occasions.

He has admitted appearing in a video in which the then child was molested, but denies being a paedophile.
