UDA meeting preparation to ‘stand down’?

Ihab Shoukri‘s solicitor in court this morning: “It’s somewhat ironic that the plea had been advanced by police that the individuals in the upstairs bar were involved in some sort of show of strength. In fact they were attending a meeting, the result of which was to announce the end of all criminal activities by the UDA. Police have documents to prove that“.
