Seven people are due to appear in courts across Northern Ireland today charged with serious dissident republican offences.
The six men and one woman face a variety of rarely used charges, including directing terrorism, conspiracy to murder and attending a terrorist training camp.
The charges, some of which have been used seldom in the past in Northern Ireland, are the result of an investigation led by police into dissident republican terrorist activity.Officers have worked closely with colleagues in the security service and, latterly, with the Public Prosecution Service to reach a point where charges have been brought.The PSNI remains absolutely committed to using every mechanism available through the criminal justice system to reduce the threat posed by terrorist networks and to keep everyone in our community safe.
