Wexford People - - PICTURES -

A MAN stay­ing in a tent at Fer­rycar­rig near Wex­ford was not en­ti­tled to be in this coun­try, Wex­ford Court was in­formed. Richard Kuhn of no fixed Ir­ish abode was brought be­fore Judge Gerard Haughton by gar­daí.

He was de­scribed as an ‘over­stayer’ and stood charged with fail­ure to pro­duce valid doc­u­ments.

It was stated that he had ar­rived in Ire­land in March with a 90-day hol­i­day visa which had now ex­pired. The pros­e­cu­tion ap­plied for con­di­tions to be at­tached to the grant­ing of bail as he had fam­ily con­nec­tions in this ju­ris­dic­tion.

Judge ruled that he must have no con­tact with his brothers An­thony and Fran­cis, with any vis­its to his el­derly mother to be ar­ranged so that they would not be present. Kuhn then signed a bail bond but the judge found that the bond was not valid as the de­fen­dant wrote in the words ‘with ob­jec­tion’.

In­stead of walk­ing out of the court­house in Ard­ca­van, the ac­cused found him­self re­manded in cus­tody un­til Oc­to­ber 9.
