Shamsul Haque Rasuly, 26, appeared in the Perth Magistrate's Court on Tuesday charged with dangerous driving causing death, failing to stop and render assistance and failing to report the accident.

It's alleged that Ryan Doyle, 25, from Leitrim, fell out of Mr Rasuly's taxi in Belmont following an argument over the fare on 19 November.

Mr Doyle later died in Royal Perth Hospital. He was repatriated and laid to rest in his home village last week.

In court, Mr Rasuly did not plead to the charges and requested an adjournment for legal advice.

He was released on bail to appear in court again on 15 January.
