Share this article


Online comments by one of the Belfast rape trial jurors are being investigated by the police.

Just hours after acquitting all four of the accused he took to Broadsheet.ie to explain the unanimous decision.

He also talked about the length of time it took to come to the decision.

The remarks were made in the comment section of an article about the trial.

They've since been removed and the incident has been referred to the Lord Chief Justice.

The Irish Times claims to have spoken to the juror in question.

The paper says he was afraid that police officers were about to call to his home.
