Kinahan released on bail

A DUBLIN man and his sons suspected of heading one of Europe's largest drug empires have been released on bail after spending the past seven months in custody in Spain.

Christy Kinahan (53) and his sons Daniel and Christy Jnr were freed on bail on Friday after a Spanish judge accepted their bail applications. Mr Kinahan Sr was released from the high-security Puerto III prison in southwest Spain while his namesake was released from a prison in Seville.

Daniel Kinahan was released on bail from the Albolote prison near Granada.
