Gerry ‘The Monk’ Hutch trial: Court told how AK-47 rifles were found in boot of car
Gerry ‘The Monk’ Hutch denies murdering Kinahan associate David Byrne during a boxing weigh-in at Dublin’s Regency Hotel in February 2016
The trial of Gerry ‘The Monk’ Hutch heard evidence about the discovery of three AK-47 rifles in the boot of a car.
Several gardai gave evidence on Thursday morning before the Special Criminal Court, outlining how three AK-47 rifles and ammunition was recovered from the boot of a grey Vauxhall Insignia in the Slane area of Co Meath on the evening of March 9, 2016.
The discovery of these rifles came just over a month after a gang of raiders, armed with AKs stormed Dublin’s Regency Hotel in an attack that led to the murder of David Byrne.
Hutch, 59, stands accused of the murder of Mr Byrne and has pleaded not guilty.
Dressed in the same clothes as yesterday – a navy blazer and a blue shirt, Hutch sat silently with headphones on as various gardai gave evidence before the nonjury trial this morning.
