An 18 year old is due back in court next week after being charged with the murder of a Japanese man in Co Louth.
Yosuke Sasaki was stabbed to death on Wednesday morning in Dundalk.
Crowds gathered outside Dundalk District Court last night as Gardaí escorted the man accused of the murder into the building.
Inside the court, the Judge heard the accused made no reply when he was charged with the murder of Japanese national Yosuke Sasaki.
The court heard there’s an issue with determining where the accused, Mohamed Morei, is from.
The 18 year old was remanded in custody where the Judge ordered that he should receive the appropriate medical and psychological treatment.
He’s to appear before Cloverhill District Court via video link next week.
