Detective Inspector Corrigan said: “North Antrim UDA remains a priority due to the human rights abuses they carry out in their local community.

“They claim to protect local people but in reality use violence or the threat of violence to control and intimidate for their own gain. Police, working with our partners and communities, are committed to tackling the scourge of this type of organised criminality.
