Bail for accused on surveillance charge
A man charged in connection with an alleged surveillance operation on the Dublin headquarters of a number of specialist Garda units has been granted bail at the Special Criminal Court.
Corey Mulhall (41), Daletree Court, Ballycullen, Dublin 24, is charged with membership of an unlawful organisation styling itself the Irish Republican Army, otherwise Óglaigh na hÉireann, otherwise the IRA on September 26th, 2012.
He was arrested last month after detectives observed suspicious activity at a hotel close to Harcourt Square Garda station. The station is home to the Special Detective Unit, whose tasks include monitoring the activities of dissident republicans. At the Special Criminal Court, Mr Mulhall was granted bail on his own bond of €100 and on an independent surety of €20,000.
State solicitor Sandra Manthe told the court that Mr Mulhall would have to adhere to a number of strict conditions. These include the provisions that he sign on daily between 9am and 9pm at an assigned Garda station, reside at an agreed upon address and observe a curfew between 11pm and 7am. Mr Mulhall was ordered not to leave the jurisdiction, and was directed to surrender his passport and to not apply for new travel documentation.
