      That is false. You are referring to persons who publish the victim or accused named in a rape case. UnitedPac published the accused name even before he was charged. They can be fined $50,000 or be imprisoned for 3 years.

    Why do we insist on knowing the name of the individual? The name will eventually come out. What is the hurry? It is that urgency to shame others that is consuming us. But remember that after this young man, there will be other hound men who will face the same allegation. Pray that your male relative is not one of those to be accused in the future.

Pray that you, too, hold fast to the moral standard.

      When one gets arrested, I don’t think the name of the individual should be publicized. Why? The person might be arrested on just mere suspicion or a false claim. When one is charged, it means that the police are reasonably confident that they have sufficient evidence to get a conviction in a court of law. It is therefore legal to publish the individual’s name. That person would have to win in court to salvage his reputation. The evidence that is given before a jury will lead to his innocence or conviction. I have no dog in this fight. Let the evidence fall where it should.

        It is illegal to publish the name of the victim or accused in rape cases even if they are found guilty. Check the Criminal code.

    I am very impressed with the manner in which the media is reporting about the journalist. Up to now we’ve not heard or rear his name. I applaud such reporting and I hope the media continues on such path.

    I don’t usually comment on incorrect grammar or spelling but I have seen this too many times. Too many people use ‘loose’ when it should be ‘lose’.
    Loose -Not fitting tightly or closely
    Lose – Become unable to find (someone or something)
    No offence intended!

    How can you charge someone based on an accusation? Why not conduct the investigation and then charge the person. If he was unable to afford the bail this guy would be sitting in jail for god knows how long based on an accusation? That can’t be right.
