Bryson asked to hand over Kingsmill files by coroner
JAMIE Bryson is being asked to hand over files linked to the Kingsmill massacre, it has emerged.
The loyalist claims police unlawfully seized his journalistic material linked to the killings.
He has now received a request for the files from a coroner investigating the incident.
Mr Bryson edits a website called Unionist Voice. He has used it to publish articles about the 1976 murders of Protestant workers by republican paramilitaries.
In the hearing on Wednesday, Mr Bryson will seek to challenge the legality of the warrant used by the PSNI to seize the material.
Mr Bryson was arrested during August’s raid and later released without charge. The investigation into an alleged offence of unlawfully supplying door staff continues. He denies any wrongdoing.
With controversy around his membership of the National Union of Journalists the High Court case is also likely to focus on whether he is entitled to invoke journalistic privilege in the eyes of the law.
Mr Bryson said: “The Coroners’ Court has now entered into the issue to request copies of the journalistic material regarding Kingsmill I say was unlawfully seized by the PSNI.”
