Judge O’Leary asked if there was any other application.

The garda said the alleged injured party in this case was entitled to anonymity and he asked for publishing restrictions.

Defence solicitor Michael Staines sought similar restrictions, that nothing should be published that would identify the complainant. He also asked for an order that the accused’s name or address and the location of the alleged offence would not be published.

A media representative said it was understood that a complainant in a sexual assault case could not be identified but asked for the basis in law for extending anonymity to the accused.

In reply, Judge O’Leary said he was making the order that neither the accused nor the alleged injured party could be identified, and he said that was provided for under Sexual Offences Act.

A State solicitor told the court it was also provided for under the Criminal Law Rape Act, and the garda was of the view it was necessary.
