Justice Minister To Introduce New Laws To Make People Aware If A Sex Offender Lives In Their Area.

: 09/13/2019 - 17:51

New laws are to be introduced to make people more aware if a sex-offender is living in their area.

Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan says it won't be as open as the disclosure scheme in England and Wales, called Sarah's Law.

It allows anyone to formally ask the police if someone with access to a child has a record for child sexual offences.

A new report released this week revealed there are 43 'high-risk' sex offenders living in the community.

Minister Flanagan says he wants to tighten up the current laws.
