Through his victim impact statement, Kevin Lunney has told the Special Criminal Court of the personal toll his abduction has had on him.

Mr Lunney's words were read out at the sentence hearing of three men who took part in a violent attempt to get him to resign from his position at Quinn Industrial Holdings.

A few weeks ago, three men were convicted for their roles in the abduction of Kevin Lunney from outside his home in Co Fermanagh in September 2019 and the beating he was given inside a horse box in Co Cavan afterwards.

They’ll be sentenced next month, but at their sentence hearing today, Mr Lunney’s victim impact statement was read out.

In it, he spoke about how the 'physical scars and mental trauma' of what happened to him will stay with him for the rest of his life.

He paid tribute to his family and colleagues and and he spoke about the campaign of intimidation towards Quinn Industrial Holdings at the time, and while he accepted these convictions were a milestone, he said he was also mindful that 'the journey to full accountability' was not yet complete.
