Jamie Bryson's lawyer raps PSNI over case delays


A lawyer for loyalist flags protest leader Jamie Bryson has criticised police delays in completing their files in the case

Bryson (23) is on bail awaiting trial on charges of taking part in an unnotified procession and encouraging or assisting offences in March.

Belfast Magistrates Court was told yesterday police could not give a full update on progress in the case because they were still waiting for the results of an examination of a computer seized from Bryson, of Rosepark, Donaghadee.

Defence lawyer Darren Duncan said he believed the alleged evidence related to speeches that Bryson had made and to his client's presence in certain locations. He said there were concerns that the examination of the computer was a fishing exercise. Police were given two weeks to report back about what was happening in relation to the case.

Meanwhile, one of the bail conditions imposed on Bryson was changed so that he can leave his home to go on a family holiday from July 26 to August 4.
