« BackMan arrested in Killorglin on European Arrest Warrant granted bail

A Belfast man wanted in connection with a Provisional IRA mortar attack on a British army barracks in Germany has been granted bail at the High Court.

Gavel 4
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 attack.
Counsel for the Minister of Justice and Equality, Mr Ronan Kennedy told the High Court there was no objection to bail on certain terms and conditions.
He said Mr Corry has very significant ties in the community, as he has lived in Kerry for 20 years, has no previous convictions and is a father of seven children.
Ms Justice Aileen Donnelly said she was prepared to fix bail in this case, given the date of the alleged offence and having regard to the fact that Mr Corry has been resident in this jurisdiction for 20 years.
Mr Corry was ordered not apply for a passport or travel documents, remain in the jurisdiction, be of good behaviour and keep the peace and sign on three days per week at a Garda Station.
Mr Kennedy told the court that the bail conditions will be “closely monitored” adding that “any breach whatsoever and the matter will be entered before this court”.
Ms Justice Donnelly remanded Mr Corry on bail to appear before the court on November 10th next.
