HALIFAX - A provincial court judge in Halifax is expected to address a mandatory publication ban today in reference to a prominent child pornography case that had made national headlines.
The mandatory ban referred to prohibits the identification of the alleged victim.
The name of the girl, who is deceased, has been previously widely reported but Judge Jamie Campbell noted the mandatory ban on identification during a hearing April 30.
Two teens face charges of distributing child pornography in connection with the case, while one of them also faces a charge of making child pornography.
Court is also expected to hear Campbell's ruling today on a defence application for disclosure of further police and Crown materials about the arrests and prosecution of the two accused.
