Haddock 'prepared to testify'

Irish Independent

TOP loyalist Mark Haddock is prepared to testify against a former boxer accused of trying to kill him, a court has heard.

Ronald Bowe (29), is the second man to be charged with the attempted murder of the alleged Special Branch agent.

Haddock (37), was shot six times as he stepped out of his car for a meeting in Newtownabbey, County Antrim, last Tuesday.

The outlawed UVF is suspected of authorising the assassination bid of one of its former commanders. He was gunned down while on trial for the attempted murder of a nightclub doorman.

His one-time trusted friend, Darren Moore (36), has already been charged with involvement. The accused was remanded in custody.
