It might be a matter for the judge but these cases will not even get as far as the judge. That is the problem. Is the Minister of State saying one image will be put forward to the judge in the Circuit Court? I would say that following the investigation, it will not be put forward by the DPP or even by the gardaí to the DPP. They will say it is a single image, it does not matter and it is not an indictable offence.
