A 26-year-old man arrested in Londonderry under the Terrorism Act as part of an ongoing investigation following a dissident republican parade on Easter Monday has been released pending a report to the PPS.

The man was arrested on Monday, July 4.

The commemoration on April 18 was organised by Saoradh, which is accused of having links with the New IRA.

The Parades Commission had ruled that no paramilitary-style clothing be worn in the procession.

The Unfinished Revolution National Easter Commemoration parade ended at Derry City Cemetery where an address was delivered.

Disturbances occurred outside the cemetery that evening and the PSNI said some of their officers came under attack.

In addition to Monday’s arrest, 13 men have been arrested under the Terrorism Act in connection with the event. All of those men have since been released pending reports to the Public Prosecution Service.
