Two weeks ago John Downey walked free from court after his legal team produced a letter from the British Government which stated that he was not wanted by the PSNI or any other police force in the UK.

John Downey was arrested at Gatwick airport May 19, 2013. The revelation of the letters which gave assurance to “on the runs” pushed the Northern Ireland assembly to the brink of collapse.
