46 year old James Anthony Oliver Albert Corry was arrested in Killorglin on Friday on foot of a European Arrest Warrant issued by German authorities. Mr Corry is suspected of being involved in a Provisional IRA attack in Osnabruck, Germany in 1996 in which three mortar shells were fired at a British army barracks. The prosecution warrant states that Mr Corry is wanted for terrorism type offences in relation to the incident. Detective Sergeant Seán Fallon told the High Court that he arrested Mr Corry in Killorglin at 9am on Friday morning. Mr Corry was shown the official warrant endorsed by the High Court on a previous occasion and given copies in English and German. When asked if he had any reply, Mr Corry told Detective Sergeant Fallon that he had nothing to say. Ms Justice Aileen Donnelly remanded Mr Corry in custody until tomorrow when an application for bail is expected to be made.
