A Belfast man is to stand trial in the city's Crown Court on charges arising from the theft of a car, a court heard yesterday.
Daryl Paul, from Glasgow Street, appeared in court via a video-link with his solicitor's office.
The 33-year-old spoke to confirm he could see and hear the court, then denied three charges linked to the theft of a Renault Clio this time last year.
Paul was charged with stealing the vehicle on December 16, 2019 and driving, or allowing himself to be carried in the vehicle, which was then driven dangerously on roads including Clifton Street, Jellicoe Avenue and Grove Park.
When this charge was put to Paul, he replied "not guilty". He also entered a "not guilty" plea to the aggravated vehicle taking of the same car, causing damage to the vehicle.
He faced a third charge of driving the Renault Clio on December 16, 2019 on the Shore Road with no insurance, which he also denied.
Judge Fowler set the date for the hearing as March 10, 2021.
