A Geraldton man accused of stealing about $2.9 million from a native title claim trust account made a brief appearance in court this morning.

Graham Greenaway, 68, is accused of stealing the funds to partly purchase the lease of a Geraldton hotel.

He is charged with stealing as a servant was not required to enter a plea when he faced Geraldton Magistrate’s Court.

Magistrate Chris Miocevich granted a request from Mr Greenaway’s lawyer George Giudice for an adjournment until next Thursday, January 16, for legal advice.

Asked if he understood the charge, Mr Greenaway said he did.

Mr Miocevich extended Mr Greenaway’s bail.
