Shoukri out before end of summer…

BACK in Belfast after a few days away, and I see my prediction that Ihab Shoukri wouldn’t be spending much time behind bars proved unsurprisingly accurate. The terrorist was sentenced to 15 months for UDA membership, which, according to the Irish News, means with time already served on remand, he’ll be out in two months. It was reported that the Public Prosecution Service was “asked to carry out an urgent review of the sentence with the prospect of an appeal to the attorney general. If successful the Court of Appeal would be asked to increase Shoukri’s sentence”. Sounds optimistic. BBC video here.
