Man is accused over child porn

AN architect accused of possessing hundreds of images of child pornography is anxious to get the matter dealt with quickly because he is "embarrassed", a court has heard.

Daniel Dusoswa (61) of Collorus, Lauragh, Killarney, Co Kerry denies knowingly having possession of 401 images of young children depicted in assorted nude poses, at his address on April 23, 2009.

At Killarney District Court, Judge James O'Connor remanded him on continuing bail to September 18 for the service of the book of evidence.

Dusoswa's solicitor, Fergus Appleby, said: "He's embarrassed by it all and feels he can answer the charges."
