INLA man to be quizzed over killing

Former INLA chief Declan Duffy will be quizzed over a soldier's murder after being transferred from Portlaoise Prison in the Republic to Maghaberry Prison in Northern Ireland.

The former terror boss (35) will be questioned over the killing of Sergeant Michael Newman, murdered by the INLA in Derby in 1992.

Armagh man Duffy became a notorious figure in Dublin's gangland over his involvement in the ‘Ballymount Bloodbath’ when an INLA member was killed.

A European arrest warrant had been issued seeking to extradite Duffy along with Anthony Patrick Gorman (39), also from Armagh.

Duffy will be questioned on suspicion of being one of the killers of Sgt Newman at Army offices in Derby 17 years ago.

Gorman is challenging his extradition.
