Redirect inside Constructor NOT WORKING

If you absolutely must do it from the constructor, you can do a slightly hacky thing and throw a RedirectException with the URL to redirect to as the message. But I highly encourage looking into controller filters, as they're specifically designed to handle the types of situations you're asking about.

You can always redirect using the "vanilla" PHP way: 

PHP Code:
        //Redirects to Unauthorized main page
        header("Location: /unauthorized"); 

Or send a JSON message and stop php after:

PHP Code:
            //Return a JSON response with the error
            //Set the header for the response to be identified as a JSON
            header('Content-Type: application/json');
            //Status Code 401 = Unauthorized
            header("HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized");

            //Writes the JSON message for the user
            echo $e->getMessage();

            die; //Stops executing the PHP

That is how I did it inside construct...
