The lawyer of a former Invercargill man facing 123 fraud charges will make an application to withdraw most of the 47 guilty pleas he entered earlier this year.

Paul Graham Yeo, 54, appeared before Judge Gary MacAskill in the Invercargill District Court this afternoon and was remanded in custody to October 9 for a three-hour hearing.

Yeo's lawyer Roger Eagles said he would file an application to withdraw most, if not all, of the guilty pleas entered in June, which were 27 charges of dishonestly using a document, 16 charges of theft and charges of obtaining money by deception.

It relates to incidents between 2006 and 2010.

In April police confirmed two Invercargill staff were sent to Australia and brought Yeo back.
