Shoukri back in jail

On Saturday the Irish News reported [subs req] that Ihab Shoukri had been “taken under the wing of the leadership of the breakaway South east Antrim UDA” – who would probably not be counted among that ‘good’ UDA grouping which will benefit from the government’s recent allocation of public funds – after returning to Northern Ireland following a relaxation of his bail conditions. Today it emerged that, by that stage, he had already been arrested and has now been charged with handling stolen goods. A High Court application to revoke bail on the earlier charges is reportedly expected.
