A former aide to DUP MP for Upper Bann David Simpson has been charged with voyeurism.

David McConaghie (49) has been charged voyeurism in the Thomas Street area of Portadown in 2012.

He is due to appear before Craigavon Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, September 24 for a first remand appearance.

The charges relate to offences between January 1, 2012 and September 12, 2012.

McConaghie, who lives in Dollingstown, had been a press officer and speech writer to the Upper Bann MP.

McConaghie was arrested in 2012 when a camera was found in the toilet block of Mr Simpson’s constituency office.

Following the voyeurism allegations, McConaghie quit his job with Mr Simpson and left the DUP.

The charges will be reviewed by the PPS as is normal procedure.

Evangelical David McConaghie, a personal friend of Minister Nelson McCausland, was arrested and quizzed in November by police over the discovery of a recording device in the toilets of Mr Simpson’s constituency office.

It claimed the recording device found in the toilets was a camera.

McConaghie and Mr McCausland are members of the Caleb Foundation mostly made up of DUP politicians and Free Presbyterian ministers.

He is also a member of the Evangelical Protestant Society (EPS).

McConaghie, who didn’t have a church, had also been an election agent for David Simpson, the DUP MP for Upper Bann.
