A Dublin-based electrical company has been fined €20,000 arising from the death of a security guard at a retail park in Co. Meath nearly six years ago.

44-year-old Victor Alonge‘s body was found under a rolling gate at Navan Retail Park on the morning of July 25th, 2016.

He had been trapped underneath it since the night before.

E.E.S Enterprise Electrical Services of Tallaght Business Centre pleaded guilty at Trim Circuit Court in February to failing to carry out the necessary research on the gate or the manner in which it was erected to ensure its safety within the four months leading up to the tragedy.

Judge Terence O’Sullivan noted the company was fully insured prior to the incident, before imposing a fine of €20,000 with prosecution costs of over €12,000.
