The brother of Sinn Fein president, Gerry Adams, will face extradition to Northern Ireland next month where he will face charges of sexual abuse against his daughter.

Liam Adams failed on Tuesday to have an extradition order overturned; he faces charges of rape, indecent assault, and gross indecency. 

The 56-year-old denies the abuse allegations made by his daughter Aine Tyrell. Prosecutors say the offences occurred between 1977 and 1983 and that his daughter was five-years-old when the abuse began.

Adam’s attorney had argued his client would not face a fair trial in Northern Ireland due to the publicity surrounding the court case.

Once the allegations were made public, Gerry Adams dissociated himself from his brother.

Justice John Edwards remanded Adams in prison until his extradition next month.
