Mohamed Morei, the man charged with the murder of Japanese man Yosuke Sasaki in Dundalk on January 3rd, did not make an appearance at court today.

According to the Irish Times, Morei was unable to attend his fourth scheduled hearing today as he is still receiving treatment at the Central Mental Hospital in Dundrum.

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.
