Man held over informer murder freed

A prominent dissident republican arrested over the murder of IRA informer Denis Donaldson has been released without charge.

Gary Donnelly, in his 40s and a member of the 32 County Sovereignty Movement, is from Londonderry but was arrested in the Irish Republic on Saturday.

A file on the case is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

He was freed on Monday afternoon at about 4pm.

Mr Donaldson was shot dead at a remote cottage in Donegal in April 2006.

Just months earlier, the former Sinn Fein official publicly admitted being a British agent inside the republican movement for more than 20 years.
