Baiba's husband release

THE husband of murdered mum Baiba Saulite is preparing for release within the next few days.

It's reported that Lebanese criminal Hassan Hassan will be able to walk free from jail shortly.

The DPP has rejected a garda recommendation that Hassan (41) be later charged with a conspiracy to murder Ms Saulite (28).

Mother-of-two Baiba Saulite was shot dead in the hallway of her home in Swords, Co Dublin in November 2006.

Hassan, with an address at Rivervalley Close in Swords, has completed his four-year sentence for kidnapping the couple's children and for his part in a stolen car ring.

In January of last year Hassan's sentence was extended by 30 days after he admitted to the possession of a mobile phone battery in jail.

It's understood that Hassan will return to the Lebanon upon his release.
