An alleged MAN who threatened to kill a female Labor member of the UK Parliament will have to wait until next month for the Director of Public Prosecution’s decision.
Daniel Weavers appeared before a special hearing by Cork District Court last November charged with allegedly threatening police in the UK that he would kill a woman Labor Parliamentarian.
Weavers with an address in Castletreasure, Douglas in south Cork had previously appeared in court on charges contrary to section 13(1)(a) and section 13(2) of the Postal Service Act, 1951, as amended by Section 4 of the Communications Regulations Amendment Act of 2007.
The 41-year-old British national has been accused of sending a threatening phone message from his home address in Douglas in cork city on October 18, 2021.
His attorney, Eddie Burke, told Cork County Court today that he has informed his client that he is not required to attend because DPP instructions are pending in the case.
Judge Olanna Kelleher asked Mr Weavers to remain on bail until he appeared in court on February 23.
At the pre-trial hearing Det Eoghain O’Callaghan gave evidence of the arrest, charge and warning.
He said the Weavers did not respond when the charge was given to him judiciously.

Gardai did not object to bail but some strict conditions were sought.
The weaver was ordered to hand over his passport, abstain from all intoxicants and make no proper contact with the British Police Service.
Weavers are also required to sign twice a week at Togher Garda station on Mondays and Fridays.
He must notify the gardai of any change of address and must be contactable 24/7 on his mobile phone. He was also instructed not to apply for a new passport.
The defendant, who was a career engineer, was detained at his home by Special Detective Branch agents, with the assistance of the Armed Support Unit.
It is understood that the arrest that followed was due to gardai receiving information from the police in the UK.
Weavers was taken to Bridewell Garda Station in Cork, where he was detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act.
