Islamic State suspect and former Irish soldier Lisa Smith has asked prosecutors to review the evidence against her and “discontinue” the charge.
A lawyer for the ex-defence forces member (37) made the request as she appeared in court today for the first time since her release from custody.
Judge John Hughes said this was a matter for the DPP and granted prosecutors more time to prepare their case. He remanded her on continuing bail, to appear in Dublin District Court again in March for the service of a book of evidence.
Ms Smith is charged with membership of a terrorist group outside the state between October 28, 2015 and December 1, 2019.
