Nevin loses latest appeal

Catherine Nevin has had her appeal to take her case to the Supreme Court turned down by the Court of Criminal Appeal.

In giving the judgement, Mr Justice Adrian Hardiman said that he could find ‘absolutely no points of any merit whatsoever’ in the application.

Nevin had asked the Court of Criminal Appeal to allow her to apply to the Supreme Court on a point of law she argued was of “exceptional public importance”.

Her solicitor had earlier told the court that she had always maintained her innocence.

Today’s case is likely to be Nevin’s last attempt at getting her conviction over turned.
