The 50-year-old is charged with possessing documents following the leak.

Personal data on all serving members of the PSNI was published earlier this month following an error by a junior member of staff in response to a Freedom of Information request.
Details released included the surname and first initial of every employee, their rank or grade, where they are based and the unit they work in.
Chief Constable Simon Byrne confirmed last week that dissident republicans had access to the information and he believed it would be used to intimidate and target police.Tags:
