A British national in Ireland has appeared in court charged with making threats to kill a female Labour MP – three days after Sir David Amess was stabbed to death in an unrelated case.
Daniel Weavers, 41, who is originally from England but now resides in the Douglas area of Cork, was brought before a special sitting of Cork District Court on Sunday.
Weavers was detained in Douglas on Saturday by police with armed support and has been charged with making a menacing message via phone on October 18 contrary to section 13 of Ireland’s Post Office Act 1951, as amended in 2007.
The court heard Weavers made no reply when the charge was put to him by gardai in custody.
He was granted bail with a variety of conditions attached during Sunday’s hearing.
Bail conditions include a requirement to abstain from all intoxicants; to surrender his passport to gardai; to make no unwarranted communication to police authorities; that he be contactable on his Irish mobile phone; and that he sign on twice a week at a Garda station in Cork.
The case will be heard again on January 12 when directions from the Director of Public Prosecutions will be given.
