Pair get bail over tiger kidnap case
TWO men who had their convictions quashed for the tiger kidnapping of a Securicor driver and his family have been granted bail until their retrial.
Mark Farrelly (37), of Moatview Court, Priorswood, Dublin; and Jason Kavanagh (34), of Parslickstown Court, Mulhuddart, Dublin, were jailed for 25 years in 2009 for robbing €2.28m from Paul Richardson and imprisoning his wife and two sons.
The pair and their co-accused, Christopher Corcoran (61) of Bayside Boulevard North, Dublin, had their convictions overturned last month.
This followed a Supreme Court ruling that search warrants used in the investigation were unconstitutional.
Judge Martin Nolan ordered the parties to appear again on July 28 to set a new trial date.
