Bloody Sunday contempt man jailed

The charge was brought by Lord Saville, the inquiry's chair

A man has been sentenced by the High Court to three months in jail for failing to co-operate with the Bloody Sunday inquiry.

The 49-year-old man, known in court as PIRA 9, is the first person to be jailed in connection with the tribunal.

After hearing his sentence, he shouted: "I am the only man to be punished for Bloody Sunday. It's a disgrace."

After declining an opportunity to "reconsider his position" the man was told to begin his sentence on Monday.
