SEAN Quinn junior is said to be "shocked and deeply disappointed" after losing his appeal against his contempt of court conviction.
The five judges who met to hear Mr Quinn's appeal last week outlined their decision at Dublin's Supreme Court this morning.
Mr Quinn, who sat with his wife Karen and sisters in the court, returned to Mountjoy Prison following the hearing.
Father Gerry Comiskey visited Sean Junior on his return to jail earlier.
Speaking to impartialreporter.com, he said: "Sean is shocked and deeply disappointed because he had been expecting to be released and thought the decision would be overturned."
Sean senior will discover his fate on Friday when he appears at Dublin's High Court and is said to be fearful about the possibility of going to prison.
"He did not attend the court today, I know he is apprehensive and very worried."
