Further Court Appearance - Circulation Of Details on Social Media, Thursday, 19th November, 2020

A man in his mid-30s is due to appear before Listowel District Court at 10:30am on the morning of Thursday, 19th November, 2020, 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.

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. 11 people have already appeared before the courts in relation to this matter following a lengthy Garda investigation led by Gardaí based in the Dublin Region.
