Dennis Hutchings: Appeal against Diplock Court decision dismissed

Former soldier Dennis Hutchings’ appeal to the Supreme Court against a decision to try him in a Diplock Court has been dismissed.

It was dismissed in the Supreme Court in London on Thursday.

Mr Hutchings is due to be tried for attempted murder in connection with a fatal shooting in Northern Ireland in 1974.

A Diplock Court is a non-jury trial heard by a judge only.
