crime world Episode 96: How sadistic killer Graham Dwyer is one step closer to freedom
European Court of Justice ruled that some evidence used in his trial was attained in breach of EU laws
He is an evil and sadistic killer who lured his vulnerable victim into a dark world of BDSM and then murdered her as part of his ultimate sexual fantasy.
Killer Graham Dwyer is just about the last convict anyone would like to see freed on a legal technicality after he was found guilty of the almost-perfect murder of Elaine O’Hara in 2015.
But it seemed he got one step closer to that freedom when a European Court of Justice ruled that some evidence used in his trial was attained in breach of EU laws.
Nicola Tallant talks with Barrister Ronan Lupton about the meaning of the legal battle that has seen Europe’s top court rule that Ireland was wrong in the way it accessed some of Dwyer's phone records.
He discusses Dwyer’s attempts to have his conviction for murder overturned, the meaning of the European judgement and why ordinary civilians should be concerned about the issues at the heart of his case.
