Derry man on Syria weapons charges has bail conditions varied


A Derry man charged with weapons and explosives training in Syria has had his bail varied to allow him to avail of computers in a course he is doing.

26 year old Eamonn Bradley of Melmore Gardens in Derry is charged with taking part in weapons training and explosives on dates between January 4 and October 28 2014.

At a sitting of Derry Magistrate's Court Bradley's solicitor Mr. Paddy MacDermott applied for one of the bail conditions to be varied.

He told the court that Bradley was currently doing an educational course and sought permission to have access to a computer, something prohibited by his bail conditions.

The solicitor said that the use of the computer would be restricted to a classroom setting in connection with his course to allow Bradley to access information of relevance to his course.

The court heard that police had no objections to the variation and District Judge Barney McElholm granted the application.

Bradley's case will next be mentioned on October 8.
