Man due in court tomorrow over suitcase killing

 

A man is due to appear before Dublin District Court tomorrow morning in connection with the killing of Adrian Bestea, the Romanian whose body was found in a suitcase in the Royal Canal in Dublin last July.

He was charged last night with an assault causing harm under the Non-Fatal Offences Act.

The man, who is a Latvian in his 30s, was arrested on the North Circular Road in Dublin at 5 a.m. yesterday.

He is being held in Mountjoy Garda Station.

Last Thursday, a 28-year-old Ukrainian, Igor Derjak, appeared in court charged with an assault in connection with the killing.

He was remanded in custody after Gardaí objected to a bail application.
