When a court is sitting in the open, the press can report on anything that happens, unless there are specific reporting restrictions.

As a principle, we do not remove a defendant's identifying information (such as name, age and address) from court reports. To do so would be set a precedent and damage the foundations of open justice. It could also defame someone innocent, who happens to have the same name.
