The president of the Irish Workers Party has been released on bail pending his potential extradition to the United States on counterfeiting charges.

Sean Garland, a 71-year-old from Navan in Co Meath, appeared at Belfast County Court today after he was arrested last night.

The US government alleges that he and others bought, moved and either passed as genuine, or re-sold high quality counterfeit $100 notes.

A defence lawyer claimed that Mr Garland "strongly protested" his innocence.
