Ruth Patterson Facebook prosecution: charge withdrawn
A Belfast councillor will not be prosecuted over remarks she made on Facebook about a republican march after the charge against her was withdrawn.
Ruth Patterson from the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) was charged with sending a grossly offensive electronic communication in August.
Speaking outside court she said "I am delighted and thrilled that this case has now finally been put to bed."
