Dublin property listed as home address of fake passport holder

It has emerged one of those alleged to have been behind the killing of a Hamas official in Dubai listed a Dublin 4 property as his home address.

According to the Irish Times, No. 6 Elgin Road in Ballsbridge was given to a hotel as an address for a man travelling under the name of Kevin Daveron.

He is believed to have been using a forged Irish passport, and the name was on a list of suspects issued by Dubai police over the killing of Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh last month.

The property at that address has been vacant for 10 years and is owned by James Reynolds, brother of the former Taoiseach Albert Reynolds.

His son John, who is behind the Electric Picnic music festival, told the Irish Times the family was "shocked and horrified" that the address had been used without their knowledge.
