A serving Royal Marine from Northern Ireland accused of terrorism, fraud and drugs offences has denied some of the charges against him.
Ciaran Maxwell is charged with making explosives and storing them in hides in England and Northern Ireland.
During a brief appearance at Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London today, the 30-year-old was not asked to enter a plea on the terror charge linked to dissident republicanism.
He pleaded not guilty to bank card fraud and intent to supply cannabis.
Mr Maxwell – who is originally from Larne, Co Antrim, but now lives in England – will next appear on all three charges at London’s Central Criminal Court on Friday, September 19.
He has been linked by the PSNI’s Terrorist Investigation Unit to finds of terrorist munitions and explosive in Larne in March and May this year.
