A young county Armagh woman accused of running a bomb-making factory for dissident republicans has been acquitted of all charges.
Orla O’Hanlon, 20, from Forkhill was cleared at Belfast Crown Court today.
BBC News reports that’s Ms O’Hanlon’s solicitor said his client had maintained her innocence from the outset and that she was glad to put the case behind her.
Her partner and co-accused, Keith McConnan, was cleared of the most serious of the charges, including the intention to commit acts of terrorism.
However, he was convicted of two separate counts of possessing items in suspicious circumstances.
He will be sentenced in June but due to time already served (two and a half years), it’s unlikely he’ll spend any further time in prison.
