Man who used Irish passports of two dead babies has been identified by FBI

A mystery man accused of using passports in the names of two dead children has been positively identified, with an FBI record dating back to the 1970s, reports The Mirror.

Cork District Court previously heard that Interpol contacted 195 member countries to help police identify the man.

An elderly man, who appeared in court via video link today, was accused of providing false information to obtain passports in the names of two children born in the 1950s who died within months of birth.

Det Garda Padraig Hanley, of the Garda National Bureau of Investigation, told the court today that the man had been identified following an “extensive investigation”.

It was also determined that he was on the FBI’s file dating back to 1970. No details were provided about the file or the name of the defendant.

Det Garda Hanley asked for the man to be remanded in custody for another week so that gardaí could continue their investigation, reports The Mirror.

Judge Joanne Carroll asked about the level of cooperation shown by the arrestee. Det Garda Hanley said cooperation was not an issue in this case.

“There is not an issue with the level of co operation. He (the defendant) has taken a particular stance,” reports The Mirror.
