Former leading loyalist Andre Shoukri has avoided jail for drugs and fireworks offences.
The 46-year-old received a suspended sentence at Belfast Magistrates’ Court on Thursday.
Shoukri, from Westland Drive in the city, was also fined £150.
In October this year he pleaded guilty to three charges of possessing a Class C drug - namely diazepam, tramadol and maxitram.
He admitted a further count of having a “Hulk Smash” fountain firework at his home without a licence.
All four charges related to an incident on October 7 2022.
At Thursday's hearing, Shoukri was sentenced to one month in custody, suspended for a year, the Courts Service confirmed.
The fine was imposed for the breach of fireworks regulations.
An order was also made for the forfeiture and destruction of the drugs and fireworks.
