A 25-year-old man has been before Waterford District Court charged with providing funds for a terrorist organisation.

Hasan Bal, who holds Irish and British passports, is facing two charges: attempting to provide funds to a terrorist organisation, and providing funds to such an organisation.

The terrorist organisation was not named in court.

The charges relate to two dates, 2 and 23 October 2015.

The court was told that when Mr Bal was charged last night at Waterford Garda Station, he made no reply.

It is understood he was born in the United Kingdom but has been living in Ireland for over a decade.

He is married but is not known to have any children.

He was remanded in custody to appear at Waterford District Court next Tuesday.

There was no application for bail today and Mr Bal was granted legal aid.

It is understood Mr Bal was in receipt of social welfare and had been training as an apprentice electrician.

He was arrested yesterday during a raid at an apartment on O'Connell Street in Waterford city but gardaí did not give that address as the address in which he was living.

Gardaí said afterwards he could possibly be facing further charges.

Mr Bal did not say anything during the short court appearance.
