A Chief Superintendent has told the Special Criminal Court he believes a 33-year-old Louth man was a member of the INLA at the time of his arrest.

Giving opinion evidence to the court today, Chief Superintendent Patrick McGee said it was his view the accused was a “member of an illegal organisation, namely the INLA”.

Anthony Lee (aged 33) of Carnbeg, Doylesfort Road, Dundalk has pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Mr Lee was one of two men arrested when a car in which he was a passenger, tried to drive through a garda roadblock in the town on December 20, 2007.

Chief Superintendent McGee, who oversees the Louth/Meath garda division, told the court he had formed this view of Mr Lee, based on “information he had built up over the years”.

The trial continues on Friday.
