Three men who abducted and tortured Kevin Lunney in an attempt to get him to resign from Quinn Industrial Holdings are due to be sentenced today.
They were convicted following a 12-week trial before the non-jury Special Criminal Court.
After being bundled into the back of a car outside his home in September 2019, Kevin Lunney was taken to a horse box in Co 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 last 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.
In his victim impact statement, Kevin Lunney said he didn’t know why the three men did what they did.
He said he couldn’t fathom the reasoning behind it but he said he was also mindful that full accountability wasn’t yet complete.
The three men are due to be sentenced later this morning.
