The name of the 32-year-old man, who is charged with, among other things, deprivation of liberty and rape of a 13-year-old girl from the Slagelse area, has been circulating on social media in recent days – but it is forbidden.

In connection with the preliminary hearing, the court prohibited information that can identify the suspect from being published in e.g. the press and on social media.

It also applies to private individuals that they may not share his identity, including name or other information that would allow him to be identified.

It is quite common for the court to impose so-called “name bans”.

Violation of the ban is punishable by a fine.
