A Belfast man charged with the murder of Irish gangster Robbie Lawlor has been plunged into an Orwellian-style nightmare since he was wrongly advised not answer police questions, the High Court heard today.

Counsel for Patrick Teer claimed he wanted to provide an account during interviews, but a previous legal representative cautioned him to remain silent.

Despite arguing that a change in circumstances had been established, the 45-year-old defendant was again refused bail.
