Dundon allowed to challenge jail conditions

A COURT has ruled that jailed criminal Wayne Dundon was entitled to a review of the strict conditions under which he was being held in the isolation unit of a prison.

Ms Justice Iseult O'Malley will decide later this month what order to make in relation to his action over his detention while he was held in Cloverhill Prison in Dublin between April and September last year.

Dundon claimed his constitutional rights were violated following his jailing in April 2012 for witness intimidation, the High Court heard. He has since been transferred to another prison.

Dundon had claimed he was effectively subjected to a punishment regime following his sentencing.
