A man held liable for the Omagh bombing is to be extradited to Lithuania to face charges related to weapons smuggling for the Real IRA.

On Wednesday, the Irish Court of Appeal dismissed Liam Campbell’s appeal against surrender.

Campbell, 58, has been battling extradition for more than 12 years.

He wanted the three-judge court to overturn a High Court decision surrendering him to Lithuanian prosecutors.

Two men found liable for Omagh bomb
It is alleged he was involved in the smuggling of weapons in support of the Real IRA (RIRA) between the end of 2006 and early 2007.

He had argued that he could not be surrendered as the Lithuanian authorities had not made a decision to actually try him.

However, the Court of Appeal in Dublin found that there was an intention to put him on trial there.

Campbell was arrested in Upper Faughart, Dundalk, County Louth, on 2 December 2016, on the second European Arrest Warrant (EAW) issued by Lithuanian authorities to be endorsed by the High Court.

It was the third time Lithuanian authorities tried to obtain his surrender.
