Suspects of sex crimes should not be named unless and until they are convicted at trial.

That's one of the recommendations of a review group set up following the Belfast rape trial in 2018.

The O'Malley review, chaired by NUIG professor Tom O’Malley,  recommends that anyone suspected of a sex crime shouldn't be named unless convicted.

Currently only the most serious charges, such as rape, entitle the accused to anonymity during trials.
