Former multimillionaire developer Philip Marley is failing in two separate lawsuits

Former multimillionaire real estate developer Philip Marley has failed to bring charges against him over alleged fraudulent property registration in two separate court cases.

The flamboyant businessman faces eight charges in connection with alleged deals involving two properties, with the case set to go to Dublin Circuit Criminal Court in April 2024.

But Mr Marley, 50, made an application to the High Court last month for “separation” of the charges so he could have separate trials in relation to each property.

It was his second attempt after being previously denied by Circuit Court President Judge Patricia Ryan.

In a judgment published this week, the High Court said it had no jurisdiction to consider the application.

Ms. Judge Niamh Hyland said if an appeal could be made against Judge Ryan’s decision, it would have to be done in the Court of Appeals.

The chief prosecutor had opposed Mr Marley’s request, saying that an appeal could only result from a conviction or verdict.

It remains to be seen whether Mr. Marley will now file a complaint with the Court of Appeals.

The eight charges facing Mr Marley, of Ashtown, Dublin 15, relate to allegedly registering a false deed, fraudulently obtaining entry on the register maintained by the Property Registration Authority, theft and money laundering between 2016 and 2018.

These are amounts of €21,875 and €246,250.

The circuit court has previously heard that Mr Marley replied “not guilty” when Gardaí presented him with the charges.

Mr Marley made a fortune when his student accommodation business, Ely Property Group, was floated on the AIM Stock Exchange in London in 2005.

He is also known for his romance with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reality TV star Dana Wilkey.

But his fortune was declining and he was declared bankrupt in 2020 with €6.6 million in debt. He has since been released from bankruptcy.

Last year he resisted an offer from a UK private equity firm, Maven Capital Partners LLP, to appoint a forensic accountant as his trustee. Former multimillionaire developer Philip Marley is failing in two separate lawsuits
