Real IRA terror charge man walks free
A man named in court as the East Tyrone Real IRA leader has had terrorism charges against him dropped.
The charges against Kevin Barry Murphy (above) (41), which arose from the discovery of a bomb-making factory in south Armagh last year, were yesterday withdrawn by the Public Prosecution Service.
It had been alleged that the Coalisland man’s fingerprints had been found on a coffee grinder linked to the factory near Keady.
Charges against four co-accused were also withdrawn at Armagh court.
