A well-known loyalist convicted of threatening to kill victims campaigner Raymond McCord has been given a three-month suspended jail sentence.

William ‘Mo’ Courtney was told he would have gone straight to prison if the offence had been committed after he was dealt with for a separate assault.

Fifty-year-old Courtney denied any encounter with Mr McCord at a traffic junction in Belfast last December.
