Donegal man jailed in Britian for failing to hand over illegally acquired assets

A Donegal man who was given the longest-ever jail sentence for illegal dumping in Britain two years ago has been sentenced to a further three years in jail for failing to hand over nearly £600,000 worth of illegally-acquired assets.

65 year old Hugh O’Donnell, who has lived in Britain for decades, was jailed in 2011 after police and the Environment Agency raided his illegal dump in Aldermaston, near Reading, which the Irish Times reports was the size of five football pitches.
