Money laundering charges against a County Tyrone republican have been dropped.

Dungannon man Brian Arthurs, 43, was arrested after police searches in May last year.

He was alleged to have been involved in a multi-million pound fraud and to have obtained a money transfer by deception.

On Wednesday, he walked free after a judge cleared him of all charges. He is now said to be considering legal action.
