Social media ban on loyalist during temporary release
Loyalist campaigner Willie Frazer has been banned from using any social media during a temporary release from prison today. The 52-year-old was also prohibited from entering Belfast while out of custody today for a hospital appointment connected with ongoing cancer treatment.
Mr Frazer, of Tandragee Road, Markethill, Co Armagh, is charged with encouraging offences by a speech to union flag protesters. The allegation relates to his address to a crowd at Donegall Square in Belfast on January 19th.
Frazer is also accused of three counts of taking part in an unnotified public procession, obstructing traffic in a public place, and possession of a prohibited weapon, namely a Taser.
Following his medical appointment, Mr Frazer is to return to prison by 4pm.
