Man held over IRA attack in Germany

By Ruaidhrí Giblin

A Belfast man suspected of involvement in a IRA mortar attack on a British Army barracks in Germany almost 20 years ago has appeared before the High Court in Dublin.

James Anthony Oliver Albert Corry (46) was arrested in Killorglin, Co Kerry, yesterday on foot of a European Arrest Warrant issued by German authorities.

Corry is suspected of being involved in an attack in Osnabruck in 1996 in which three mortar shells were fired at a British army barracks.

Detective Sergeant Sean Fallon told the High Court that he arrested Corry in Killorglin at approximately 9am yesterday.

Ms Justice Aileen Donnelly said she was satisfied the person before the court was the person in to whom the warrant referred. She remanded Corry in custody until next Tuesday, when an application for bail will be made.

Counsel for the State said a surety would be needed if the court were to grant Corry bail.
