Supporters of Colin Duffy clashed with police outside Belfast Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday after the Lurgan republican was charged with IRA membership.
Two men, aged 32 and 33, were arrested for assaulting police, disorderly behaviour and resisting police as the result of altercations after the hearing.
In court, Duffy (47) of Forest Glade, was charged with membership of the IRA along with Belfast men Alex McCrory (52) and Henry Fitzsimmons (46).
The trio were also charged with conspiracy to murder members of the security forces and conspiracy to possess firearms and explosives with intent to endanger life and damage property.
Duffy was arrested in Lurgan on Sunday night. He appeared in court surrounded by prison officers and riot police.
McCrory and Fitzsimmons were separately accused of aiding and abetting the attempted murder of police travelling to the scene of a loyalist protest on the Crumlin Road, Belfast on December 5 when shots were fired at the officers’ vehicles.
A shortened version of the charge sheet was read out before solicitors for the accused told Magistrate Fiona Bagnall they had no submissions to make.
The three men were remanded in custody to Maghaberry to reappear before the court via video-link on January 14.
They waved to a crowd in the gallery who noisily indicated support as they were led away to prison.
