Republican leader Price charged in connection with cemetery rally

Veteran republican Marian Price has been charged by police investigating a dissident republican rally in Derry on Easter Monday.

The 57-year-old will appear in court in the city on Monday accused of encouraging support for a proscribed organisation.

She attended the event at Derry City Cemetery where a masked paramilitary spoke to crowds.

Price, who was arrested in west Belfast on Friday, and her sister Dolours were among those convicted of a 1973 bombing outside the Old Bailey in which one person was killed and almost 200 others injured.

She split with the mainstream republicans of Sinn Féin around the time of the Good Friday Agreement in 1998.

She is now a spokesman for the 32 County Sovereignty Movement, considered to be the Real IRA’s political wing.
