At the hearing in April Sergeant Aoife Cronin told Sinéad McMullan BL, prosecuting, that gardaí used CCTV footage, a database of registered public service vehicles and a computer generated likeness from the first victim to identify Uddin.

As part of the garda investigation, officers also used GPS co-ordinates from the HALO taxi app which confirmed that Uddin had travelled the three routes the women had outlined to gardaí.

The court heard that as part of his bail conditions a female passenger was not permitted to be a front seat passenger in Uddin's taxi. He was also subject to a curfew which meant that he wasn't permitted to work as a taxi driver at night time.

Seamus Clarke SC, defending, said the bail conditions had been put in place by the High Court and that gardaí policed Uddin while he was on bail. His license was revoked when he subsequently entered guilty pleas in February.

Ex-CIA officer jailed after spying for China

Ex-CIA officer jailed after spying for China A former CIA officer has been sentenced to 20 years in jail after spying for China and trying to expose agents who had been under his charge. Kevin Mallory, 62, from Leesburg, Virginia, was convicted last year under the Espionage Act after providing classified information to Chinese handlers in exchange for $25,000 (£20,000). Prosecutors had sought to have him jailed for life, while his defence lawyers had asked for no more than 10 years in jail. The court in Alexandria had heard that Mallory was caught after being selected for secondary screening at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport in April 2017.

Today Mr Clarke said his client had been provided with documentation to surrender his tenancy, but that his wife and children would be allowed to remain in new accommodation once it is ready.

Mr Clarke said that a psychological report showed Uddin as being someone with low levels of intellectual function.

Judge Ní Chulacháin said the case was aggravated by Uddin abusing his position as a taxi driver, his being aware of the vulnerability of the injured parties, his refusing to stop the taxi in two of the three cases, the timing of the offences being at night, his touching one of the women on her bare skin under her clothing and the somewhat planned targeting of the third woman.

She said the mitigating factors were his guilty plea, his losing his livelihood, his losing of his tenancy, his difficulties in early life, his mental health difficulties, his previous good character and his lack of previous convictions.
