IN TRIBUNALE L’UOMO ACCUSATO DELL’OMICIDIO DI RONAN KERR
Prima apparizione in tribunale di Gavin Coyle, l’unico formalmente accusato in relazione all’attentato mortale ai danni del neo agente cattolico della PSNI
Gavin Coyle, 33 anni, è apparso quest’oggi dinnanzio alla Dungannon Magistrate’s Court. L’uomo è stato trattenuto in custodia 4 settimane prima che fosse convalidato l’arresto. Contro di lui, pesanti accuse.
Possesso di Semtex, fucili d’assalto e molotov. Reperti sequestrati dalla polizia durante una perquisizione di un garage in Mountjoy Road, Omagh.
L’uomo sarebbe stato incastrato da video da telecamere a circuito chiuso e da un’impronta rinvenuta sulla scena dell’attentato che coinciderebbe con una prelevata nell’abitazione dell’imputato.
Non è stata avanzata alcuna richiesta di libertà su cauzione. Coyle apparirà nuovamente in tribunale a Omagh, il mese prossimo grazie ad un collegamento video.

A man has appeared in court charged in connection with the murder of Constable Ronan Kerr.
Gavin Coyle, 33, from Culmore Park, Omagh, was charged with possession of explosives, firearms and articles likely to be of use to terrorists at Dungannon Magistrate’s Court.
No bail application was made and he was remanded in custody for four weeks.
The charges relate to items found in a police search in Coalisland following Constable Kerr’s murder.
Semtex, assault rifles and improvised incendiary devices were among the items discovered by police at a garage on the Mountjoy Road.
The court heard a footprint found at the scene matched one taken from the accused’s home.
An investigating officer also said CCTV footage had been seized as part of the case and that Mr Coyle had been identified in two identity parades while in custody.
Constable Kerr, 25, was killed by a bomb placed under his car in Omagh, County Tyrone on 2 April.
Two other men arrested over the murder were released “unconditionally” on Tuesday.
Mr Coyle will appear in court again in Omagh next month via video link.
