Sinn Fein’s Jennifer McCann has welcomed the release of Lurgan republican Martin Corey from Maghaberry prison.

Corey, who was sentenced to life imprisonment for murdering two police officers in 1973 but released on licence in 1992, had his licence revoked in 2010.

It is understood the Secretary of State ordered his release yesterday – despite the convicted killer having a judicial review application turned down by the Supreme Court six weeks ago.
