Eye witnesses have given evidence in a murder trial of seeing an internet cafe owner chase a man out of his shop and kick him on the ground.

The alleged attack is understood to have followed a row over a 70 cent phone call outside the e-Times internet cafe and call shop on Dublin’s Wellington Quay.

Zhen Dong Zhao (36), of Jervis Street, Dublin, has pleaded not guilty to murdering Noel Fegan on May 20th last year. The 40-year-old had gone into the shop to phone his daughter, who had sent him a “call me” text.

John Bosco Dillon told the court: “ I saw the deceased being chased by the accused. The accused grabbed him by the collar and pulled him down to the ground. He kicked him two to three times and then the accused paused. He kicked him another two times,” he added.

The trial continues.
