Former east Belfast UDA leader has bank accounts frozen

Former east Belfast UDA leader Jim Gray has had his bank accounts frozen, Banbridge Magistrates Court heard today.

The 47-year-old, who was charged at the weekend with possessing and concealing criminal property but who denies the charges, appeared by video link from Maghaberry Prison and spoke only to confirm his name.

A solicitor told the Court that Gray could not access money from his accounts, even though there was no court order to freeze them.

He is to appear at the same court in a week's time in regard to the above charges.
