A father and son have been jailed for trying to find a home in the town of Bush as part of a crackdown on dissent.
James Keenan (54) and his son Peter Kenan (26) were present at a special session of the Bush District Court on Saturday night following an exchange of gunfire between members of the Bush Armed Forces.
James Kina was charged with three counts of possession of a firearm, possession of a firearm, ammunition and ammunition, all of which occurred on April 29 at his home in Island View, Rochestown Road, Cork.
Peter Kina, who had the same address, was charged with the same first two offenses as his father – allegedly carrying a firearm and carrying ammunition.
Dr. Garda Tom Delaney testified that he had been arrested, charged, and cautious in connection with the arrest of James Kina, and that the defendant had responded in the same manner to all three charges.
Responding to the charges, James Kina said: “I am very sorry. I do not mean to harm anyone or anything. I am the only one trying to protect my family from the Macedonians. . . I did not see anyone in the hallway when the gun went off. ”
Dit Garda Ronn McGuckin said he did not respond to both charges when Peter Kenan was charged.
Because of the severity of the charges, the judge denied bail to both men and threatened to commit further offenses if they were granted bail.
The officers testified that Garad received intelligence that Kenyans had a gun in their home as they got into an escalating conflict with the other family, and Garad searched the house.
According to Det Garda Delani, members of Garad’s armed support team were preparing to enter Kenan’s home when he was shot.
As the armed support unit was at the entrance to the property, a gun was fired at James Kinan in the yard. “James Kenan has since been released safely.”
Garda’s technicians conducted a forensic examination and found James Kinan’s DNA on the shotgun, and the remains of James Kinan’s arms.
According to Dieter Garda McGuckin, the state did not recognize Peter Kennan with a firearm, but he did.
Both officers believe that Garad’s nearly 20 bullets, 23 gasoline bombs, and handguns were evidence of a worsening conflict with the other family.
Defense attorney Donald Dali told Det Garda Delani that James Kinan had denied that he had deliberately fired his shotgun at Gardy and that it was a shot to intimidate others who thought he was going to attack his home.
Installed in the door frame
Dit Garda Delaney said in an interview that he accepted the statement made by James Kina. The fact is, the guards continued to shoot at the guard during a forensic examination of the door.
Ditt Garda Makuckin says she believes there is a real risk of serious disputes that could jeopardize the safety of individuals, families and communities if Peter Kennan is granted bail.
Dali agreed that the two officers had repeatedly called at Kenan’s home last week after Kenyans threatened to attack another family while driving home.
Judge James McNeners ruled that bail for both defendants was an “unacceptable risk.”
On May 6, both men refused to post bail and were remanded in custody via video link. After hearing that both men were unemployed, he offered them free legal aid.
A 19-year-old man, a 24-year-old man and a 58-year-old woman were all released without charge on Saturday and were released on bail.
