Police investigate video remarks made about alleged sexual assault on baby case

Clip lasting almost two minutes since removed from Facebook

Police have confirmed they are investigating a video posted online which references an ongoing court case regarding the alleged sexual assault of a baby.

The video clip – which lasts almost two minutes – was posted on social media and shows a commentary by Markethill man and victims campaigner Willie Frazer.

It has since been removed.

In the video he references an ongoing court case in which a 25-year-old man has been charged with the sexual assault of a baby on September 29.

The accused appeared in court via videolink yesterday (Wednesday) and an indication has been given that a bail application will be made at a later sitting, with the defendant remanded into custody until November 7.

Meanwhile, the video showing Mr Frazer speaking was posted on October 7.

Police confirmed that an “investigation is underway” regarding the video.

A PSNI spokesperson said: “As is usual procedure during an investigation, we will be liaising with the Public Prosecution Service.”
