THIS is the man accused of laundering €4,000 in cash.

Derek Corr (29) is facing trial by judge and jury in the Circuit Court after the DPP ruled the matter was too serious for the District Court.

Judge Bridget Reilly remanded him on bail to a date in February for the service of the book of evidence.

The accused, of Forest Hills, Rathcoole, Co Dublin, appeared before Tallaght District Court charged with converting, transferring, handling or using €4,000 in cash that was the proceeds of criminal conduct.


The alleged incident, contrary to the Criminal Justice (Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing) Act 2010, took place at Killinarden estate, Tallaght, last February 6.

Gda Gavin Cooke said he arrested Mr Corr at 8am on Monday morning and took him to Tallaght Garda Station where he was later charged by Sgt Caroline Cullen.

Gda Cooke said Mr Corr was handed a true copy of the charge sheet and made no reply to the charge after caution.

The court heard gardai had no objection to bail.

Judge Reilly remanded Mr Corr on bail in his own bond of €100.

As part of his bail conditions, he must sign on three times a week at Rathcoole Garda Station.

Defence solicitor Michael Hennessy said there was no application for free legal aid at this stage.
