Today, both Mr Aylmer and Mr Brady and were in court, when similar charges were read out. The court was also informed that Mr Aylmer had been charged by Gardaí prior to his appearance in today’s court.

All three men will be tried before the Special Criminal Court, after the Director of Public Prosecutions deemed the normal courts inadequate to secure the effective administration of justice, under the Offences Against the State Act.

Both men charged today were also remanded in custody by Mr Justice Owens, until May 23rd next.
