An employee accused of the £26.5m Northern Bank robbery in Belfast in 2004 has been granted bail by a High Court judge.
Chris Ward has been released on bail
Lawyers representing Chris Ward, 24, from Colinmill, Poleglass, challenged the decision of a lower court to remand the bank worker in custody.
He denied the charge when he appeared before a magistrate earlier this month.
Bail conditions were imposed and Mr Ward was freed on his own and other bail totalling £120,000.
He appeared via video-link from Maghaberry jail where he has been on remand for the past fortnight.
Mr Ward's lawyer, Frank O'Donoghue, QC, said he had been a victim of the gang which carried out the robbery and was not a participant "in any way, shape or form".
In opposing bail, the prosecution had claimed there was a chance witnesses or evidence could be interfered with and that Mr Ward might not show up for his trial.
Lord Justice Campbell said: "I have to say it's a matter which I had to consider very anxiously because of the enormity of the crime alleged against him but I believe that he will turn up."
In freeing him, he did however impose a number of bail restrictions, including the surrender of his passport.
Mr Ward must also report to police twice a day, observe a curfew from 2100 to 0730 GMT and not go within a mile of the Northern Bank premises which were robbed a year ago.
