File against priest facing voyeurism charge remains outstanding

Father Aidan Patrick McCann

THE full file against a priest accused of voyeurism is still outstanding, a prosecuting lawyer has said.

Father Aidan Patrick McCann (35) did not attend Craigavon Magistrates Court for the mention of his case where a prosecuting lawyer said the PPS was still waiting for the full police file.

"Unfortunately the full file is still outstanding. It's been outstanding for quite some time,"a lawyer said.

Fr McCann, with an address at the parochial house on Maddens Row in Keady, is accused of voyeurism on March 28. None of the alleged facts surrounding the offence have been opened in court but it is understood the charge arises following an alleged incident involving a female at a changing room in Rushmere shopping centre.

Fr McCann was ordained in July 2015 and serves in the Armagh Diocese.

District Judge Greg McCourt adjourned the case to September 2.
