Mr Reynolds was travelling to work as a subcontractor painter at Shorts aircraft factory in October, 1993 when his van was ambushed by UVF gunmen.

They opened fire, killing the 40-year-old from west Belfast before fleeing the scene.

Mr Reynolds was pronounced dead after workmates managed to get the van to Shorts, while three others were injured.

Police reopened their investigations into the case back in October.

Since then they have arrested five men, the latest being a 49-year-old who was detained in the east Belfast area on Wednesday morning.

The four people previously arrested were released without charge.

Surely this is a breach of the agreement by arresting these people as this happened before the agreement
