Kieran Joseph Healey, of Tivoli Park, Derry, faces seven charges of fraud by false representation.

He is further charged with possessing articles in connection with fraud, namely court documents and emails.

The offences were allegedly committed between September 2011 and August last year.

During a brief hearing at Derry Magistrate’s Court, Healey confirmed he understood the charges against him.

He declined to say anything in answer to the charges or to call any evidence on his own behalf.

A defence solicitor accepted there was a case for the 36-year-old to answer.

Healy was released on continuing bail to appear at the Derry Crown Court for arraignment on August 27.
