These charges, under the Theft and Fraud Offences Act, state that he used false employment offer letters for a guest house at his home address on dates in April and May last year.
He is further charged with having of a stun gun disguised as a flashlight, as well as one count of cannabis possession on November 25, 2015.
A detective garda told Judge Anthony Halpin it was a “commercial enterprise” and it had cost €7,000 to arrange a marriage “by 50”.
