The Mirror reports: Mr Justice Sweeney, presiding judge for the south eastern circuit, will hear the case at the Old Bailey from 2.30pm on Tuesday.
But sources at the court confirmed that the senior judge would not require Lord Janner to be present for the hearing.
Earlier this month, he was forced to attend Westminster Magistrates’ Court for 59 seconds after a week-long legal wrangle over the issue.
His legal team had been insisting he was too ill to attend in person because of his advanced dementia.
But two senior judges ruled the former Labour peer and MP must attend because of “the obvious and strong public interest in ensuring those summoned to court attend when required”.
Janner now faces an unusual form of trial known as a trial of the facts. The defendant cannot put forward a defence, no verdict is reached and the court does not pass sentence.
