PSNI still hunting suspects after Continuity IRA terrorist plot recordings

By Alan Erwin

Police are still seeking more suspects based on secret recordings of Continuity IRA terrorist plot meetings, the High Court has heard.

Ten people have so far been charged and reports on a further five sent to the Public Prosecution Service.

But a judge was told efforts are continuing to locate others believed to have attended a series of gatherings at a house in Newry, Co Down.

Prosecution counsel said: "There are persons who police believe they have identified as having attended these meetings.

"They are being sought and have not been made amenable yet."

Details emerged during a renewed bail application by one of the men accused of being at some of the meetings covertly bugged in an MI5 operation.

Terence Marks faces charges of belonging to a proscribed organisation, namely the IRA, and conspiring to cause an explosion likely to endanger life.

The 55-year-old, of Parkhead Crescent in Newry, denies the allegations.
