In June, police said he was shot by dissident republican group Arm na Poblachta.

A 41-year-old man was arrested under the Terrorism Act on Tuesday in the Poleglass area by detectives investigating Mr Johnston’s murder.

On Thursday a PSNI spokesman said the man has been released unconditionally.

He will however be reported to the Public Prosecution Service for a number of unrelated offences.
