Parole commissioners were today ordered to disclose why loyalist killer Michael Stone was released from prison.

Lawyers acting for the sister of one of the three men killed by Stone during by a gun and grenade attack at Milltown Cemetery in 1988 had launched a legal challenge on the decision to release him on parole.

Hugh Southey QC, representing Stone, had told the court that there were “material reasons to be concerned” about his client’s safety.
