A British national in Ireland has appeared in court for threatening to kill a Labor MP – three days after Sir David Amess was stabbed to death in an unrelated case.
Daniel Weavers, 41, originally from England but now residing in the Douglas area of ââCork, appeared before a special Cork District Court hearing on Sunday.
Weavers was arrested in Douglas on Saturday by police with armed support and charged with delivering a threatening message by telephone on October 18, contrary to section 13 of the Irish Postal Act 1951, as amended in 2007.
The court heard that Weavers did not respond when the charge was brought to him by the prison guard.
He was released on bail with various conditions during Sunday’s hearing.
The conditions of release on bail include the obligation to abstain from all intoxicants; hand over his passport to gardai; not to make any unjustified communication to the police authorities; that he can be reached on his Irish mobile phone; and that he commits twice a week to a Garda station in Cork.
The case will be heard again on January 12 when the directives of the Director of Public Prosecutions are given.
