Donaldson murder - man to appear at special criminal court

The cottage where Denis Donaldson was found shot dead on April 4th, 2006.

The second of two men arrested by gardaí as part of the investigation into the murder of Denis Donaldson has been released without charge.

The man, aged in his 30s, was released from Letterkenny Garda station last night without charge. He had been arrested on Sunday.

Gardaí say a file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Mr Donaldson, a high-ranking Sinn Féin official,  was shot dead in April 2006 at a remote cottage near Doochary. His murder came just four months after the revelation that he had been a British agent for 20 years.

Investigating gardaí are continuing to appeal to anyone with information in relation to this murder to contact them at the incident room at Letterkenny Garda station on 074 9167100, the Garda Confidential Line at 1800 666111 or any Garda station.
