The Special Criminal Court is today due to deliver verdicts in the trials of four men accused of the abduction and torture of businessman Kevin Lunny.
The men have pleaded not guilty to charges of false imprisonment and assault causing the director of Quinn Industrial Holdings (QIH) serious harm in September 2019.
After returning to his home in County Fermanagh on September 17th, 2019, Kevin Lunney claims he was dragged out of his car and forced into the boot of an Audi vehicle.
From the stand last June, he said he was then transported to what he believed to be a horse box where he claims he was stripped to his boxer shorts and doused in bleach before being beaten with a stick and attacked with a knife.
His leg was broken and he said the letters ‘Q-I-H’ were carved into his chest.
Throughout his ordeal, he claimed he was repeatedly told to step down from his role at Quinn Industrial Holdings.
Four men stand accused of falsely imprisoning and seriously assaulting him.
One of the men can’t be named for legal reasons. The other three are:
- 40-year-old Alan O’Brien from East Wall in Dublin city
- 27-year-old Darren Redmond from East Wall in Dublin city
- 68-year-old Luke O’Reilly from Mullahoran Lower, Kilcogy, County Cavan
The three judges of the non-jury Special Criminal Court will deliver their verdicts later this morning.
