A lawyer yesterday declared it was "perfectly clear" that an alleged dissident republican was guilty of plotting to buy and smuggle guns and explosives.

The claim came from prosecuting QC Gordon Kerr as he made final submissions in the Belfast Crown Court trial of Co Armagh men Paul McCaugherty and Declan Gregory, also known as Michael Dermot.

McCaugherty, 43, from Beech court in Lurgan faces a total of six charges including conspiring to get arms and explosives, IRA membership and three charges of using money for the purposes of terrorism.

Gregory, 41, from Concession Road in Crossmaglen, denies two charges making property available to terrorists.

Mr Justice Hart said he would deliver his judgement as soon as possible.
