A Co Armagh man accused of placing a car bomb on a police officer’s vehicle has been refused bail.
He is due to stand on trial in August on suspicion of attempting to murder an off-duty officer in Derry/Londonderry in June 2015.
He has been on remand since last May and faces an additional charge of possessing explosives – namely an under vehicle improvised explosive device – with intent to endanger life.
Making the application, McVeigh’s defence argued over the length of time he has been on remand, and the fact a suitable bail address had been secured.
However, the prosecution argued that a trial date had been set and was just a matter of weeks away.
Judge Gordon Kerr QC raised concerns over McVeigh being a flight risk, before refusing bail and remanding him back into custody.
