Cahoon, of Cherrymount; Rush, from Ballyvesey Green; Gibson, of Milewater Drive – all in Newtownabbey; Campbell, from Clareville Avenue in Ballyclare; and Wylie, of Galgorm Road in Ballymeana, all deny the charges.

During the preliminary enquiry hearing all five men nodded to confirm they understood the allegations against them. None of them called witnesses or gave evidence at this stage in the proceedings. Backing prosecution submissions that each of the accused has a case to answer, District Judge Fiona Bagnall returned them all for Crown Court trial. She then released them on continuing bail until their arraignment on a date to be fixed. None of of the men were charged with belonging to an illegal organisition namely the UDA.
