Kevin Lunney will be given an opportunity to address the Special Criminal Court today if he wants to outline how his abduction in 2019 has affected him.
The sentence hearing of three men convicted of abducting and torturing the director of Quinn Industrial Holdings is due to get underway later this morning.
After being bundled into the back of a car outside his home in September 2019, Kevin Lunney was taken to a horse box in county Cavan where he was stripped, punched, beaten with a stick, attacked and branded with a knife, doused in bleach, and then dumped on the side of a quiet country road.
A man, who can’t be named by court order, and two others; Alan O’Brien (40) and Darren Redmond (27), both from East Wall in Dublin, were convicted earlier this month of falsely imprisoning the director of what was known back in 2019 as Quinn Industrial Holdings. They were also convicted of causing him serious harm.
Their sentence hearing is due to take place later this morning, when Mr Lunney will be given an opportunity to deliver a victim impact statement, if he so wishes.
