In Thursday’s Irish News, Connla Young reported:

MI5 has made an application to withhold information from the inquest of murdered GAA official Sean Brown.

An inquest review hearing on Thursday heard that a Northern Ireland Office (NIO) minister has now issued a Public Immunity Interest (PII) certificate in relation to material provided by The Security Service, which is also known as MI5.

PII certificates are used by state agencies to conceal information they don’t want placed in the public domain.

It is understood the PII certificate was signed by NIO minister Steve Baker.
