Man charged over threat to kill British female Labour MP in Cork

A 41-year-old British citizen has been remanded on bail after he was charged by Gardaí in Cork in relation to a threat made against a British Labour MP last month.

Daniel Weavers of Castletreasure, Douglas, Cork was brought before a special sitting of Cork District Court on Sunday and charged in relation to the threat to kill the woman.


He was charged with a single count, that on October 18th he sent a message that was menacing via telephone.

Gardaí were seeking that Weavers would abstain from all intoxicants, surrender his passport and sign every Monday to Friday at Togher Garda Station.

Gardaí were also seeking as part of his bail that he would have no unwarranted communication with British police authorities.


Weavers will appear before the court again on January 12th.
