Kinahan cartel lieutenant Ross Browing is facing a High Court hearing in October as the Criminal Assets Bureau look to strip of him of his properties.

At a hearing today it was heard the case, in which proceedings were first issued in July 2020, could take two days of court time.

The court previously heard that a fresh party was seeking to be attached to the proceedings to represent the estate of Browning’s grandfather "Mr Conway" who passed away in March 2018.

It emerged at that hearing that it was the wishes of Mr Conway to leave property to his daughter Julie Conway who is Ross Browning’s mother.

CAB aim to strip him of his fortune which includes a 1.2-acre private estate in Garristown in County Dublin where he built paddocks, and an indoor show-jumping arena.

Also included in the cases against Browning, who did not turn up at this week’s hearing, are two separate houses along with sites in Rush in north Co Dublin.

Fitness fanatic Browning has portrayed himself as an ordinary gym owner and kept an address at Hardwicke Street flats where he grew up.

He followed a spiritual guru, Dr Robert O’Young, and followed a vegan zen life and had even taken part in an RTE’s Fittest Families show in 2016 which was cancelled.

Browning has been a top target for both the CAB and the garda’s Drug and Organised Crime Bureau for years and is suspected as being one of the most senior members of the Kinahan Cartel in Ireland.

The case against Browning is part of the massive on-going effort to bring down the Kinahans which recently saw five people, including Daniel and his father Christy, placed on US sanctions list.

It has also been revealed that 600 people connected to the Kinahans, including many in the professional boxing world will find themselves denied entry to the United States.
