During a hearing at Enniskillen Magistrates Court today, Mr McKinney was asked if he wanted to say anything in answer to the charge, but he declined to do so.

He was released on his own bail of £500 to appear at Dungannon Crown Court for arraignment on January 15.

As part of his bail conditions he was ordered to surrender his passport.
