10 people due in court in relation to the circulation of details on social media in Ana Kriegel case
Two teenagers were convicted of the murder of 14-year-old Ana Kriégel following a seven-week trial which concluded in November of 2019.
10 people are due in court in connection with the identifying of a teenage boy found guilty of the murder of Ana Kriegel.
The 10 people, who are due to appear in court on Wednesday morning, are alleged to have identified the boys on social media.
Of the 10 people summonsed, six are male (ranging from age 21 – 38) and four are female (ranging from age 24 – 48).
An investigation was launched when images and details were circulated online despite a court order being in place preventing the 14-year-old boys from being named and a provision under the Children Act that prohibits the identification of minors accused or convicted of a criminal offence.
One person has already appeared before the courts in relation to this matter following a lengthy Garda investigation led by Gardaí based in Dublin.
