A HOMELESS man charged with the murder of a Romanian man last week in a park in Tallaght, is a “serious flight risk”, a court heard.

At Tallaght District Court on Friday, Judge Patricia McNamara remanded Feri Anghel (38) in custody to appear before Cloverhill District Court next Friday, April 27.

Anghel, of no fixed abode, is charged with murdering Ioan Artene Bob at Sean Walsh Park, Tallaght, on April 13, 2018.

Mr Bob (49) died in Tallaght Hospital on Friday (April 13) after he was found seriously injured but alive in Sean Walsh Park just before 8am that day by a passerby.

The emergency services were alerted. He was treated by paramedics before being taken to Tallaght Hospital.

Mr Bob had lived in Ireland for the last three years.

He worked in construction and had a partner and a son aged eight in Romania.

Anghel appeared in custody before Judge McNamara. The Romanian national who has short black hair and a prominent black beard, wore a black hoodie.

Sergeant Shay Palmer told the court that he arrested Anghel at 10.16pm on Thursday night in Tallaght Garda Station.

He said that at 12.20am on Friday morning Anghel was charged by Sergeant Brian Norton with the new charge.

He said Anghel replied “no” to the charge.

Sgt. Palmer added that as Anghel was charged with murder, bail was not available in the District Court.

Anghel’s solicitor, RIchard Young, told Judge McNamara that his client could provide an address.

Sgt. Palmer said that he was not satisfied with the address.

He added: “I believe he is a serious flight risk given the nature of the charge”

Judge McNamara remanded Anghel in custody to appear before Cloverhill District Court next Friday, April 27.
