I presume there is a ban on the press displaying images of those arrested!

Usually the papers have pictures of people being brought into the garda stations or courts trying to hide!

Would there be a temporary ban on all information related to the accused on the press until further details have been processed?

Get them in, interview them separately and see if their stories are consistent with each other.
Don't know that it's standard procedure in all cases to let suspects carry on nefarious activity for a year, especially when there's serious criminal activity involved as seems to be the case here.

This has completely gone off the radar in the news today. Very odd considering the amount of publicity it has got over the last few days, and the unprecedented severity of the accusations

You're not insinuating someone with a lot of influence is involved and got legal gagging orders in place are you?

Gardai said in a statement this morning: "Eleven people arrested by Gardaí as part of an investigation into alleged sexual exploitation of children have been released without charge.

"Files will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions. The investigation is ongoing."

Can't find it right now, but read somewhere yesterday that all the children suspected of being involved were moved into care a long time ago.

Yes. If children are victims of sex crime they usually don't name the perpetrator for fear the children might be identified. This is essential to protect the victims. When the victims have reached adulthood and if they consent to it then the courts will name the perpetrators.

You don't want other kids in the school yard coming up to a kid asking them about being raped.

You lot love a bit of speculation but my guess is that the perpetrators and the victims are related (if the kids were taken into care then this is highly likely) so you're unlikely to see people named and shamed.

The Gardaí have a very good reputation when it comes to these crimes (the father of a victim was on the radio praising the horrible job the sex crimes unit do last week) so I would say the victims are and were their first and foremost priority.

Imagine if your job was to have to watch videos or look at pictures of children being raped by an adult. I don't know how people do that without becoming suicidal. They deserve huge credit.

Hardly, that'd be crazy. It's just unusual to see something get so much coverage one day and nothing the next day

Good to hear that. Hadn't read it. It was kinda surprising that the gardai didn't move quicker on the arrests but if those in immediate danger had been moved to safety maybe they were just waiting for others in the ring to incriminate themselves. Hopefully the catch all the scumbags and throw the book at them
