A MAN accused of money laundering nearly €24,000 has been further remanded by Tallaght Court for service of his book of evidence.

David Hearns was before Judge Patricia McNamara for service of the book.

Tallaght Court June 2016

A Solicitor for the DPP told the court that the book was not before the court. She added that there had been a mix up as the prosecuting garda had another case before the court.

She asked for a further remand for the book.

Hearns, aged 24, with an address at Castle Park, Tallaght, is charged with possessing €23,905 in cash while knowing or believing that it was from the proceeds of criminal conduct contrary to Section 7 (1) a (ii), 7 (1) b and 7 (3) of the Criminal Justice (Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing) Act 2010.

Hearns’ solicitor, Michael Hennessy, objected to the application. He asked Judge McNamara to strike the case out. He said the case had been before the court for the book on the last date and he had consented to a remand.

Stating the serious nature of the charge, Judge McNamara did not grant Mr Hennessy’s application. She remanded Hearns on continuing bail for two weeks for service of the book of evidence.
