Man charged with people-trafficking at Rosslare Port
Two found hidden in truck being attended to by immigration authorities
Dimitar Dichev (45) has been remanded in custody over a people-trafficking charge.
A Bulgarian man has been charged with two people-trafficking offences after two people were found hidden in a truck at Rosslare Port on Thursday evening. They are now being looked after by immigration authorities.
Speaking from the body of the court, Mr Dichev’s appointed solicitor Aideen Lawlor said the man was a father, and had been working on and off. He has not been working recently. Judge Kevin Staunton granted legal aid.
Mr Dichev is due to appear again before Wexford District Court on Tuesday and will reside at Cloverhill prison, and the solicitor told the court in Gorey that the position of Mr Dichev would be reserved until that date.
Meanwhile the two people found in the truck, who are believed to be known to each other, have been offered accommodation and welfare services by the Reception and Integration Agency (RIA).
