Pat Hickey's trial for alleged ticket touting will begin in Rio in November.
In a statement published by the trial judge Guilherme Schilling Duarte on the courts system, the judge says there is just cause to proceed with the criminal trial against Mr Hickey and Kevin Mallon.
It is set to begin on November 29th.
The trial is scheduled to get underway almost a year after the former OCI President left Brazil after being charged in connection with the allegations of ticket touting at the Olympic Games.
Mr Hickey, who had initially been held in Rio, was given permission to return to Ireland late last year on medical grounds upon payment of a bond worth over €400,000.
Last week, the Prosecutor said if Mr Hickey does not return for trial his bond will be retained locally.
Mr Hickey's legal team had suggested he may testify by video link, at the discretion of the judge.
Mr Hickey has previously said he will be proven innocent of all the charges against him, while the Defence teams for Mr Hickey and Mr Mallon have claimed no crime has been committed by their clients.
The judge says the arguments of legal teams "will be resolved during the course of the instruction", and he said all the conditions necessary to ignite penal action are present.
