RILASCIATI 2 DEGLI INDAGATI PER L’OMICIDIO DELL’AGENTE DEL PSNI
Sono stati rilasciati 2 degli uomini arrestati nell’ambito delle indagini sull’omicidio dell’agente del PSNI Stephen Carroll.
Lo scorso lunedì sei delle persone in stato di fermo per gli attentati di Craigavon e alla base militare di Massereene si sono appellati alla High Court, contro la richiesta di proroga del periodo di detenzione. Solo Colin Duffy era presente all’udienza.
I giudici hanno concesso l’anonimato per gli altri cinque sospettati, che intenzionati a sollevare l’ illegittimità del provvedimento e la violazione del loro diritto alla libertà ai sensi della Convenzione Europea sui Diritti Umani.

Two men, aged 27 and 31, who were arrested last week in connection with the murder of Constable Stephen Carroll have been released without charge.
Five others remain in custody. The 48-year-old was shot by the Continuity IRA in Craigavon, County Armagh, on March 9.
His murder came just two days after the killing of two soldiers at Massereene Army barracks in Antrim.
They were Sappers Mark Quinsey, 23, and Patrick Azminkar, 21.
Earlier on Monday, six people being held in connection with the murders of the three security force personnel launched a High Court challenge to the extension of their detention period.
Only one of the six, prominent republican Colin Duffy, who is being questioned about the soldiers’ murders in Antrim, was present as his lawyers attempted to overturn a decision which allows police to keep them in custody for an extra seven days.
Judges have granted anonymity to the other five, who are all seeking an urgent judicial review on the same basis that the move was unlawful and breached their right to liberty under the European Convention on Human Rights.
