A foreign national has brought a High Court action designed to halt his prosecution for possession of hundreds of images of children being raped and molested.
Daryle Singh (52) is charged with three offences under the Child Trafficking and Pornography Act but claims the lengthy delays in the investigation process make it unfair to place him on trial BreakingNews.ie has reported.
Singh, who lives in College Wood, Castleknock, Dublin 15, was arested in late 2019 in relation to the images and was returned for trial before Dublin Circuit Criminal Court in November 2020 following an investigation by the Cyber Crime Unit of the Gardai.
However, the computers belonging to Singh were seized by the Gardai in 2011, the were only provided to the Garda’s National Cyber Crime Unit in early 2014 and it was five years before Singh was arrested and charged.
Singh alleges that the delay in this investigation process has made it unfair to place him on trial.
Mr Justice Charles Meenan has placed a stay on the prosecution of Singh pending the outcome of his High Court action, which he granted on an ex-parte basis.
