A 33-year-old Polish national has been remanded in prison as he faces charges of sexual exploitation over the alleged prostitution of a woman in Dublin.
Grzyb Grzegorz of Alexander House in Tallaght will appear in Dublin District Court on 7 December over accusations that he had been “taking advantage of the vulnerability” of the alleged victim “in order to sexually exploit her” between 1 and 11 September 2011.
He was also charged with controlling or directing the activities of a prostitute for profit at his residence on 3 March 2012, in violation of the Criminal Law (Sexual Offences) Act 1993.
Grzegorz described the respective charges as “rubbish” and “lies” at the first court sitting on 16 November.
Niall O’Connor, representing the accused, said his client has been in Ireland for nine years, engaged in full-time work in a bakery, and has just returned from a visit to Poland with only €300 left in savings.
However, Judge Halpin imposed €6,000 bail “given the nature of the charges” while also granting free legal aid to the accused.
On condition of his bail, Grzegorz must dwell at his home address, sign on at Tallaght Garda Station trice a week, and have no contact with the alleged victim, her associates or any potential witnesses in the case.
