Paedophile loyalist Harbinson faces charges over vandalism

By Paul Higgins

Prominent loyalist and convicted child sex offender Mark Harbinson has been accused of causing criminal damage to road signs by painting them red, white and blue.

Harbinson (48) was not in Lisburn Magistrates Court where his solicitor Aiden Carlin revealed he had asked the prosecution to review their decision to prosecute him.

Harbinson, currently in custody accused of possessing a pistol and ammunition, faces two charges of causing criminal damage to road signs belonging to Transport NI on dates between September 9 and 15 last year.

A prosecuting lawyer confirmed the PPS had received a letter from the defence and asked for the case to be adjourned to allow time for a review to be conducted.

Granting legal aid, District Judge Peter King relisted the case on June 6.
