THIS man (photographed) is to face a criminal trial, charged with having over €20,000 cash, knowing it to be the proceeds of crime.
Eddie Ryan jnr, (38), with an address at College Avenue, Moyross, Limerick, was charged with one count of having €21,320 cash, contrary to Section 7 of the Criminal Justice (Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing) Act 2010.
Mr Ryan is alleged to have had the cash at his home, on July 1, 2020.
Mr Ryan’s solicitor, Sarah Ryan, no relation to the accused, said the accused would abide by any bail conditions imposed by the court.
Gardai consented to bail, provided Mr Ryan not commit any criminal offenses; that he be of good behaviour; surrender his passport; sign on three times a week at Henry Street garda station; and that he notify gardai of any change in his home address.
Prosecuting Sergeant, Sean Murray, told the court that the Director of Public Prosecutions had directed Mr Ryan “face a trial on indictment”.
Mr Ryan agreed to all of the bail conditions.
Judge Patricia Harney, presiding, remanded Mr Ryan on bail, on his own bond of €100, which did not have to be lodged with the court.
He is due to appear before Limerick District Court again on December 6th for service of the State’s pre-trial Book of Evidence.
