Not such an historic snapshot in time after all?

Three weeks ago, when charges of membership of paramilitary groups, the UDA and the UFF, were dropped against Ihab Shoukri, Judge Thomas Burgess commented that when deciding what evidence to put forward, the prosecution “may have to consider wider issues than those before the court.” Since then there has been an attempt to expel the Shoukri brothers from the UDA, which prompted this response, and now, according to the BBC, Ihab Shoukri is to appear in court on “terrorist offences” tomorrow.. the best laid plans o’ mice an’ men..?
