Detective Sergeant Daniel Callaghan told the court that he charged Trevor Noone at 10.30am today, to which Noone replied: "No."

Dekker was arrested at his home just before midnight and taken to Blanchardstown garda station and charged. He made no reply.

As Dekker was led from the court, members of the public hurled abuse.

An application for legal aid was made for both men and they were remanded in custody to appear at Cloverhill District Court on December 21.
