Sinn Féin member arrested

Detectives in Northern Ireland were today questioning a Sinn Féin member as part of an ongoing inquiry.

The man, from north Belfast, was arrested by anti-terrorist officers at his house, the party said.

Sinn Féin councillor Eoin O’Broin said: “Heavily-armed PSNI members accompanied by Special Branch personnel raided the home.

“The man has been arrested and taken to the police interrogation centre in Antrim.

“This man has been the target for PSNI Special Branch operations over the past two years.”

The republican party refused to give further details until legal discussions were completed.

Although police were also tight-lipped, it is understood the operation does not relate to inquiries into security breaches at Stormont government offices or the Castlereagh police complex in east Belfast.

A PSNI spokeswoman said: “A man has been arrested this morning in north Belfast this morning in connection with an ongoing police investigation.”
