These "NEW IRISH" are not really all we were promised at all at all!
Arthur Liwembe (33) was immediately arrested after he went to the station of his own accord and presented the
cannabis to a garda on duty to say he was not happy with his purchase.
Judge John Hughes said Liwembe’s behaviour was
“illogical to say the least” and was indicative of a cannabis-induced “psychosis”.
He adjourned the case for a probation report.
Liwembe, a former student nurse with an address at an asylum-seekers’ reception centre, pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of cannabis and other charges.
The accused came here from Malawi in 2012 as a student nurse but his visa ran out and he applied for residency on the basis of having an Irish-born child, Ms Fitzgibbon said.
