The trial of a Castlegregory man accused of smuggling in Greece has been adjourned.
27-year-old Seán Binder, who is a German citizen but grew up in Castlegregory, was arrested on the Greek island of Lesbos after several months' service as a volunteer for an NGO assisting refugees and migrants in 2018.
He faces a number of serious charges - people smuggling, membership of a criminal organisation and espionage - and faces a possible prison sentence of 25 years.
His trial started this morning in Greece.
In a tweet, Sean Binder said the judges have sent the case to a higher court due to jurisdiction constraints.
He claims he and the fellow accused now face a wait of a number of months.
Greece-based journalist Lydia Emmanouildou says Mr Binder gave his reaction afterwards.
