Egyptian migrant avoids jail for beating woman with a belt

An Egyptian engineer who says he came to Ireland after his family were killed in a bomb attack has avoided a jail term for beating his flatmate with a belt during a tenancy dispute.

Garda Paul Newport said Mina Fanous (35) had turned up at the apartment he had lived in and told the flatmate he had rights as a tenant before hitting her with the belt.

His defence counsel submitted that he had come to Ireland after his wife and child we killed in a bomb in Alexandria, although there was no documentation to prove this.

Fanous, of no fixed abode, pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to assaulting Jiagua Chen causing her harm, stealing her Samsung phone and causing criminal damage to her laptop at Time Place, Corrig Road, Sandyford, Dublin on April 20, 2015. He has one previous minor theft conviction for which he was fined.

The case had been adjourned twice and Fanous was allowed out a bail to gather documentation to prove his claim of the bomb attack and his rights of access to the apartment.

    No documentation to prove the bombing story and he has a previous conviction. What do migrant criminals have to do to get deported !
