Ward charged for bank robbery…

Chris Ward has been charged for the Northern Bank robbery. So far, no there has been no speculation that Ward has any connection with the IRA, the organisation universally accused of masterminding the biggest raid in Europe. Gerry Adams believes this arrest and others are all political in nature. This is one to keep watching.
