10 People Due In Court Over Social Media Details Related To Kriégel Case

Criminal Courts Of Justice

Ten people are due to appear before the Criminal Courts of Justice this morning over social media details related to the Ana Kriégel case.

It’s part of an ongoing Garda investigation into the circulation of images and details on social media claiming to identify a teenage boy who was found guilty of the murder of Ana Kriégel.

An investigation was launched when images and details were circulated online despite a court order being in place preventing the 14-year-old boys 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 the Dublin Region.

The six men and four women aged between 21 and 48 are due before the district court in Dublin at 10.30am this morning.
