DISSIDENT FACES MOBILE PHONE TERROR CHARGE; Allegation He Made Bomb Calls


Byline: GEORGE JACKSON

A LEADING dissident republican was charged with terrorist offences yesterday.

Gary Donnelly, a member of the 32 County Sovereignty Movement from Derry, appeared at the city's magistrates court.

Donnelly, 39, is accused of having a mobile phone in circumstances that led to the reasonable suspicion that its possession was in connection with the commission, preparation or instigation of an act of terrorism.

The charge relates to three attacks in September last year.

A PSNI detective constable told the court that the charge related to claims of responsibility by the Real IRA on September 11, 2009.

He said: "The claims are about two pipe bomb attacks and a punishment shooting."

The PSNI officer also claimed Donnelly was charged as a result of statements made by Daily Mirror freelance journalist Eamonn MacDermott. He received a claim of responsibility during a telephone call.

The police witness told District Judge Barney McElholm that the defendant was charged with the offence in relation to statements obtained from Mr MacDermott and on the basis of extensive telephone inquiries.
