facing extradition proceedings

No, not that extradition case. This is another case. Leonard Hardy, who served 5 years in the Republic of Ireland for possession of explosives in 1990, was arrested in Spain today on a warrant issued by the authorities in Germany. According to the RTE report, he is wanted for questioning about an IRA attack on a British Army base in Osnabruck in 1989 and the attempted murder of a British Army employee.. the Belfast Telegraph also has a report.. and the BBC has Sinn Féin TD Arthur Morgan’s reaction – “It is my firm view this man should be released and allowed to return home to his family in Ireland without any further delay.”
