Adams expresses condolences to family of stabbing victim
Sinn Féin Louth TD Gerry Adams has expressed his shock at the murder in Dundalk of Yosuke Sasaki, and the wounding of two other men.
The Louth TD said:
“I want to express my deep sense of shock at the brutal murder of Yosuke Sasaki in Dundalk and the wounding of two other citizens.
"I want to join with my colleague Councillor Ruairi Ó Murchu in extending our deepest sympathies to the family of Mr. Sasaki and to those also of the two injured men.
"I would urge anyone with information to bring that forward to An Garda Síochána.
"I have written to the Minister for Justice, Charlie Flanagan TD asking him to determine exactly what contact the Egyptian national currently in custody, had with the immigration service.
"Also what steps the Garda took following it’s contact with him, what his immigration status was, and whether all necessary steps were taken by the various state agencies in dealing with him.”
