Sameer Syed, 37, of Grosvenor Lodge, Rathmines, Dublin 6 is charged with murdering his wife Seema Banu, 37, his daughter Asfira Riza, 11, and son Faizan Syed, six, at Llewellyn Court, Rathfarnham, on October 28 last year.

Residents raised the alarm when Ms Banu and her two children hadn’t been seen in several days.a person standing in front of a building: Sameer Syed, 37, will go on trial at the Central Criminal Court in June next year.

Counsel for the DPP Brendan Grehan SC yesterday said that the District Court had made certain orders in light of a Court of Appeal ruling but those orders no longer applied due to a change in the law. ‘There is no impediment to them being named,’ he added.

When Mr Syed was charged with murder at Dún Laoghaire District Court on November 30 last, reporting restrictions under Section 252 of the Children Act were applied because two of the deceased were juveniles.a group of people posing for the camera: Seema Banu, 37, with daughter Asfira Riza, 11, and son Faizan Syed, six.

The Children (Amendment) Act 2021 was signed into law last month after a vigorous campaign by families and media to have the restrictions on identifying child murder victims lifted.

Mr Justice White set a trial date for June 15, 2022.
