South Down Assembly member and prominent Colombia Three campaigner Catriona Ruane was today fined £1,000 for having no road tax.

Ms Ruane, a Sinn Fein MLA and spokeswoman for the Cambodian Three Bring Them Home Campaign, was also ordered to pay £125 in costs at Belfast's Laganside Magistrates Court.

The MLA, whose address was given as Stockman's Court, Belfast was not in court today to face the charge of having a vehicle unlicensed on April 1, 2004.

The Sinn Fein Assembly member was also the former organiser of the annual West Belfast Feile.

But she rose to prominence when she was appointed spokeswoman for the campaign to release the three Irishmen held in Colombia.
