Dundalk as it Happens
Man accused of Dundalk attacks has case adjourned as court hears he is not fit to attend
The man accused of murdering a Japanese national in Dundalk eight days ago had his case adjourned at Cloverhill District Court this morning.
Mohamed Morei was charged last Thursday with the murder of 24-year-old Yosuke Sasaki on the Avenue Road in Dundalk on January 3rd.
He is also alleged to have attacked two other local men at separate incidents at the Inner Relief Road and Seatown Place on the same day.
Mr Morei was due to appear via video link at Cloverhill District Court this morning but Judge Victor Blake was told he was not fit to attend as he is currently receiving treatment in the Central Mental Hospital.
The case was adjourned for two weeks. Mr Morei is now due to appear at Cloverhill District Court on Thursday January 25th.
Whether Mr Morei appears for that sitting remains to be seen with the judge receiving a letter from a forensic psychiatrist at the CMH suggesting that the accused would not be fit to appear then either. Judge Blake nevertheless set the date and requested an updated letter at that time.
