A Belfast man wanted in connection with a Provisional IRA mortar attack on a British army barracks in Germany in 1996 has been granted bail at the High Court in Dublin.

James Anthony Oliver Albert Corry (46) was arrested in Killorglin, Co Kerry, on Friday on foot of a European Arrest Warrant issued by German authorities.

Mr Corry is suspected of being involved in a Provisional IRA attack in Osnabruck, Germany, in 1996 in which three mortar shells were fired at a British barracks. The prosecution warrant states Mr Corry is wanted for terrorism-type offences. Counsel for the Minister of Justice and Equality, Ronan Kennedy BL, told the High Court yesterday there was no objection to bail on certain terms and conditions.

He said Mr Corry had very significant ties in the community, as he had lived in Kerry for 20 years, and he had no previous convictions and was a father of seven.

Ms Justice Aileen Donnelly said she was prepared to fix bail, given the date of the alleged offence and that Mr Corry had been resident in this jurisdiction for 20 years.

She remanded Mr Corry on bail to appear before the court on November 10th next.
