Mohamed Morei case adjourned until February
THE teenager accused of murdering a Japanese man in Dundalk had his case adjourned at Cloverhill District Court today.
The court heard that Morei, aged 18, was "unavailable and not fit to be produced".
His solicitor Barry Callan provided Judge Blake with a letter from a consultant psychiatrist stating that Morei will be unable to attend in the next four weeks.
Judge Victor Blake remanded Morei in custody and adjourned the case until February 8th.
Japanese man Yosuke Sasaki, aged 24, was killed after he was fatally stabbed on the Avenue Road, Dundalk on January 3, 2018 shortly before 9am.
Morei was arrested and charged in Dundalk with the murder of Mr Sasaki on January 4, 2018 and remanded in custody at Cloverhill Prison later that night at a special sitting at Dundalk District Court.
