Ten persons are due to appear before the Criminal Courts of Justice, Court 8, at 10.30am this morning (October 28) in connection with 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.
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 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.
A woman appeared before a sitting of Waterford District Court on October 22 in connection with the ongoing Garda investigation.
