Pakistani asylum seeker pleads guilty to sexual assault on man with disability
A Pakistani man , Mohammad Sarwar age 43 has pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a middle aged man with an intellectual disability on a bus in the Dooradoyle area of Limerick on January 19, 2017 .

Kilmallock Court heard how Mohammad Sarwar , an asylum seeker from pakistan had come to garda attention in the past and had been moved from various asylum hostels in tralee , Foynes and Dublin due to inappropriate behaviour .

Det Garda Mick Dunne told the court that In May 2016, Mr Sarwar “inappropriately approached” two children in a playground in Foynes. "In December 2016, he inappropriately approached a woman in a shopping centre in Tralee. In May / June  2017, he followed a female manager of an asylum centre from her workplace and made an unwanted approach. He was moved to another asylum centre and made another inappropriate approach to a woman at a bus stop. He asked her could he come home with her. She felt very uncomfortable. He was removed from the asylum centre system due to his behaviour to staff members” said Det Garda Dunne   

Sergeant Donal Cronin said the State was objecting to the defendant being released on bail pending a sentencing hearing.

He cited the nature and strength of evidence and the “likelihood of the defendant reoffending”. 

Detective Garda Mick Dunne said he believed if Mr Sarwar was given bail he would commit “similar serious offences”.
 
Mr Sarwar’s solicitor, Sarah Ryan said if granted bail a friend of Mr Sarwar’s has agreed to let him live with him and his family in Dublin. His friend took the stand and said he has known Mr Sarwar for eight or nine years. “He is a Muslim. I am a Hindu. We are friends,” he told Kilmallock Court.

Ms Ryan asked him if he was “fully aware” what Mr Sarwar is charged with.“Yes. He said . He has stayed quite a few times with me,” said the man, who has a wife and three children aged 13, 11 and seven months. “Do you have any concern about Mr Sarwar staying in your house?” asked Ms Ryan. “No,” he said.   

Judge Marian O’Leary also asked him if he had, “Any difficulty in a man who allegedly inappropriately approaches women in your house?” “No,” he replied. 

Sgt Cronin reiterated the State’s objection to bail on the grounds of the risk of reoffending, pleading guilty to a serious charge and he would leave the jurisdiction. 

Despite Objections , Judge O’Leary granted bail to Mr Sarwar who will now be moved to Dublin to reside with his friend .

Deport him
#
this is crazy

firstly , there are NO wars in pakistan , he should not be claiming asylum in Ireland or anywhere else for that matter

secondly , he should have been deported immediately after approaching the children in the playground

He is being moved around and poses a serious threat to members of the public.

Deport him !
#
I just cant understand this , letting the man free on bail , sending him to dublin and putting more people in danger

there are currently 4,500 asylum seekers living in 32 centres accross 16 counties costing 70 million per year .

80% of all asylum seekers in 2016 were deemed not genuine , 95% in 2015 but yet we are spending on average 70 million a year on them while our homeless people get nothing but a cold street or doorway to sleep in.

something is not right in this country and must change , we must demand change from our politicians and discuss all these issues however uncomfortable it may be for them
