Letterkenny man arrested in Ibiza

A LETTERKENNY man has been arrested in Ibiza over an accusation of sexual assault dating back to 2018.
Olive Press reports that in a separate case, Michael Murray (58), who was a self-styled ‘spiritual psychologist’ had previously been charged with sexual assault and kidnapping at a March 2018 appearance.
He vanished after the preliminary hearing and the Guardia Civil were unable to find him.
He was arrested on Tuesday after a woman who accused him of assaulting her four years, spotted him walking down the street in the Es Viver area.
Policia Nacional Officers detained him and he offered no resistance.
Murray apparently had no ID documents on him but was identified via a Guardia Civil database check.
Police sources say that he moved around living in ‘substandard housing’ like a ‘homeless man’.
It’s not clear whether his 2018 court appearance saw the removal of his passport and any other restrictions imposed on him, before he broke the terms of his bail.
Prior to his arrest four years ago, he worked as a guru in a Ibiza-based organisation that police said ‘operated as a sect’.
Murrary was charged in 2018 with assaulting and kidnapping a woman for three days. A Malian national was also charged with assisting him.
The woman escaped and took refuge in a shop where she found a Stanley knife which she used in an attempt to take her own life, Olive Press reports. She spent two days in the Intensive Care Unit of the Can Misses Hospital.
