A court heard today that victim Yosuke Sasaki (24) was a “fine, young man” who worked in a local factory in Dundalk .

Gillane said the deceased was a “fine young man”, a hard worker who was very intelligent and dedicated to trying to improve himself. In a bid to learn English he joined a WhatsApp group and from that he met an English woman who wanted to learn Japanese.

Having left work he made his way towards a post office to pick up something he had ordered online. At the same time members of the public in Dundalk noticed a man with a non-Irish appearance acting “erratically” and “menacingly” on the street.

When he got to work, Grehan realised he had suffered a wound from a sharp implement. A third man named Cian Murphy was also attacked by the accused a short distance away, counsel said.

Gillane said the accused is Egyptian and traveled to Dublin from Northern Ireland in January 2018.

He was assessed by a consultant psychiatrist, charged with murder, and committed to the Central Mental Hospital where he has remained since.
