With the court case restarting on 23rd
September, can we please remind everybody that it is against the law to
write about the case or the defendants in public. This particularly
includes social media and all its platforms including Facebook, Twitter,
You CANNOT mention the name of the
accused and say ANYTHING about them in the run up to and during the
trial incase any of the jury break the rules and Google to look for
comments to sway their decision.
IF you make such comments and they are
found by the court, YOU will be arrested and taken to court yourself to
face charges of "contempt of court". If found guilty YOU are the one who
will end up in jail or being heavily fined whilst the defendant will
have the charges against them dropped as a result of your deeds (however
well intentioned they may have seemed).
PLEASE - FOR THE SAKE OF THE VICTIMS -
DO NOT DO THIS AND RISK INTERRUPTING THE COURSE OF JUSTICE.
