Tweeting and Texting to be banned in Court

Tweeting and texting from court will be banned for members of the public, from the end of this month, following a new direction signed by the presidents of all courts.

It was announced by Chief Justice Mr Justice Frank Clarke at a seminar organised by the Courts Service and the National Union of Journalists.

It will come into force from Monday-week in every court from the District Court to the Supreme Court.
