A young airport worker has told a court he was defending himself when he "touched" the testicles of a colleague who, he alleged, was strangling him during a work break.
Radek Huska (29) told the Circuit Civil Court he was on a break with his colleagues when he had been attacked by workmate Machiej Kijve.
It happened at Dublin Airport in the loading bay area of Gate Gourmet Ireland Ltd, a provider of airline catering.
Mr Huska told the court there had been some horseplay between colleagues. One had been throwing ice-cubes at him and Mr Huska had threatened to throw an apple he was eating if he continued annoying him.
Judge Jacqueline Linnane heard that Mr Kijve ran towards Mr Huska, wrapping his arms around his neck and dragging him to the ground.
Mr Huska, of Parklands, Northwood, Santry, Dublin, said that while he was trying to defend himself he had touched Mr Kijve's testicles and denied that he had grabbed him in his groin area.

Kildare’s new refuge for women and children who are victims of domestic violence is standing empty because the State will not provide adequate funding to run it.
The center, in Kildare town, cost almost €1m ($127m) to provide and it could accommodate up to four families at any one time but since the local Teach Tearmainn organization took ownership of the premises in mid January it has not been able to open it as it cannot afford to employ staff .
