MAN BARRED FROM MALIN ALLOWED BACK TO COLLECT DOLE

first_imgA local man ‘excluded’ from Malin after being charged with threatening to kill and possession of drugs, has been allowed back into the town temporarily to collect his dole.Boggs appears in court. Pic by Northwest Newspix.Finbarr Boggs, Barrack Street, Malin was also facing charges of cultivation of cannabis plants, sending an obscene or menacing message by phone, and dangerous driving when he appeared at Carn District Court. Inspector David Murphy told the court that Mr. Boggs, who has been remanded on bail on a total of six charges, was ‘excluded’ from Malin earlier this month for a ‘particular reason’. He said he did not consent to the accused being permitted access to the town.However defence solicitor Pat McMyler urged Judge Paul Kelly to allow Mr. Boggs to collect weekly social welfare payments in Malin every Tuesday afternoon.“He’ll get a lift to the Post Office and then leave immediately. He could go at 2pm and be away again by 2.30,” he said.Addressing the court directly, Mr. Boggs, who was wearing a hooded top, said he ‘only needs five minutes to collect my dole’.Judge Kelly directed that the defendant, who is also facing a charge of driving without insurance, be permitted to collect his payment on Tuesday and that he should then have his social welfare payments transferred elsewhere.Inspector Murphy revealed that the charges against Mr. Boggs ‘continue to be under investigation’.He said he was seeking a lengthy adjournment to allow for that investigation to progress further.Judge Kelly adjourned the case against Mr. Boggs until October 20 for additional instructions from the Director of Public Prosecutions.MAN BARRED FROM MALIN ALLOWED BACK TO COLLECT DOLE was last modified: July 23rd, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CarndonaghdolInishowenMichal Boggspost officelast_img read more
