UNION Flag campaigner Willie Frazer has appeared in court charged with breaching bail conditions.

Mr Frazer, from Markethill, County Armagh, is currently facing a number of charges linked to flag protests in January.

He was arrested in east Belfast on Tuesday after holding an earlier meeting at Stormont.

A police constable said that when he left the building, there was a loyalist protest going on outside.

She told the court this was in breach of one of his bail conditions, which was not to be within two miles of a loyalist protest.

The constable also said that Mr Frazer had a dispute with NI21 politicians Basil McCrea and John McCallister in the Great Hall of Stormont.

She said Mr Frazer said to them: “You’re a disgrace, your party should have been called the AK47 party and not NI21.”

The court heard that he was arrested at a cafe on the lower Newtownards Road that afternoon.

Mr Frazer was released on the same bail conditions and is due in court again next month.
