Commissioner Drew Harris and Assistant Chief Constable Mark Hamilton, PSNI, speaking to the media on the day of the alleged  abduction of Kevin Lunney, September 17, 2019

Yesterday.

The Special Criminal Court, Dublin.

Counsel for the fourth accused, Michael O’Higgins SC, told the court  that a vehicle in respect of which evidence was gathered was apparently “burned” while in garda custody, “apparently accidentally”.

Mr O’Higgins said he did not have full details on what happened to the vehicle and “the easiest thing to do would be for the State to tell us all they know”.

Mr Justice Tony Hunt, presiding at the three-judge court, put it to prosecuting lawyers that the matter seemed to be “of concern”.

Counsel for the DPP, Gareth Baker BL, replied that the State were “looking into it”.

You’ll have to do more than look into it,” the judge replied.

Good times.
