Title: NZ court to rule on extradition case next month.
Author: Dominique Schwartz
Publication: Australia Network News
A former Catholic brother wanted in Australia on 252 charges of child sexual abuse won’t know until next month whether he will be extradited from New Zealand.
A hearing has been held in the Christchurch District Court on Friday for 65 year old Bernard Kevin McGrath.
New South Wales police have alleged that he sexually assaulted 35 children while working at the Saint John of God Boys’ Home, Kendall Grange, near Newcastle, during the 1970’s and 1980’s.
McGrath, who is fighting the extradition, listened intently during the hearing.
Details of Friday’s proceedings can not be reported as they are subject to a blanket suppression order.
Judge Jane Farish says she will hand down her decision on May 16.
