Man caught with child pornography sleeping in car in Newbridge

Naas Courthouse

A man on the sex offenders list in the UK appeared before Naas District Court on Thursday, March 28.

Mohammed Yaqub, 55, with an address listed in court documents as Allenview, Allenwood, Kildare is charged with failing to notify gardai of information required under the Sex Offenders Act on March 15, 2019.

The court heard Mr Yaqub was found to be in possession of child pornography in Wales and Scotland.

Evidence was given that Mr Yaqub failed to notify gardaí when he came to Ireland.

The court was told that he gave gardaí an address in Allenwood, but that the landlord had told him to leave that rented accommodation.

The court heard Mr Yaqub is now sleeping in his car in Newbridge.

Judge Desmond Zaidan said an address is paramount to the Sex Offenders Act.

The case was adjourned until May 23, 2019 for DPP directions.
