Attempted murder charges dropped for prominent Dungannon republican
A court has thrown out charges of attempted murder against a prominent Dungannon republican after the Public Prosecution Service withdrew from the case.
David Jordan (45) was accused of trying to kill a Catholic PSNI officer in May 2008.
The off-duty officer suffered serious leg injuries after a bomb detonated under his car near Castlederg as he drove to work in an attack later claimed by the Real IRA.
The case against the 45-year-old was discontinued after the PPS withdrew the case during a hearing in Strabane last week.
