Two men in Derry court on drugs charges granted anonymity after judge says those carrying out attacks in the city use details published in the media to identify victims

Two men have been remanded in custody on a series of drug charges. The two appeared at Derry Magistrate's Court today where applications were made for anonymity. District Judge Barney McElholm said there was a generalised threat and added that those behind attacks in the city had claimed they gleaned information from newspapers and granted the application. The pair are charged with possessing cocaine and cannabis on September 21. They also face charges of possessing the drugs with intent to supply and being concerned in the supply of the drugs on September 21 and other dates between 2016 and this month. A police officer connected them to the charges and there was no application for bail. Both were remanded in custody to appear again next month.
