Facebook & Twitter before court today

Facebook and Twitter have been ordered to take down any material that might identify the two boys convicted of Ana Kriegel’s murder.

Gardaí also issued a warning earlier today about the consequences of breaching provisions dealing with the issue in the Children Act.

Both convicted boys are 14-years-old and their identities were protected throughout the lengthy trial by order of the court and by law.

That protection remains in place for the rest of their lives and nothing can ever be published which will identify or tend to identity them.

Following concerns raised by Boy B’s lawyers that such material was being posted and shared online, a High Court judge has ordered representatives from Facebook and Twitter to come before his court today.

Mr. J Michael White also made an order for the social media giants to take down any material which identifies the two boys.

The court has unlimited powers of imprisonment and fine for contempt of court and a person can also be jailed for up to three years if they break the relevant law in the Children Act.
