Two face extradition to UK over 1992 murder

Two men are facing extradition from Ireland to the UK in connection with the INLA murder of British army recruitment officer, Michael Newman, in Derby in 1992.

Anthony Gorman, 39, was arrested in County Cavan last week and is currently remanded on bail, while Declan Duffy, 36, was arrested in Dublin today on a European Arrest Warrant.

Both men were named as suspects in the murder at the time but extradition attempts in 1994 failed.

A third man Joseph Magee was subsequently arrested in Armagh in 2004 and was jailed for 25 years in 2004 after pleading guilty to the murder on the understanding he would be released two years later under the terms of the 1998 Belfast Agreement.

Man remanded over murder of British army sergeant

A 34-year-old native of Armagh who is wanted in the UK on a charge of murdering a British Army Recruitment Officer has appeared before the High Court on foot of an extradition warrant.
Declan Duffy originally from Armagh but with an address at Hanover Street West in Dublin, was arrested this morning and when asked if he knew what it was in relation to he replied, " yes I know what it's about."

It is alleged by the UK authorities that he murdered 34-year-old father of one, army sergeant Michael Newman who was shot in the head outside an Army Careers Office in Derby in England in 1992.

Mr Justice Michael Peart remanded Mr Duffy in custody until May 27.
