Derry Men Not Quizzed About Belfast Bank Raid

Tuesday 22nd February 2005

A solicitor representing the two Derry men arrested in Dublin last Thursday has said his clients were never questioned in relation to the Northern Bank robbery.

The two Derry men were arrested in Dublin on Thursday and news of their arrest was included in reports about money laundering operations.

Yesterday, prominent Derry solicitor Paddy MacDermott, who represents both men, issued a statement on their behalf.

He said both men said: "We were never questioned about the Northern Bank robbery and we deny being involved in money laundering or any subversive activities.

"We are very disturbed at much of the media coverage surrounding our arrest and we are currently taking legal advice about some of that coverage."
