NEW LAWS ON SHARING INTIMATE IMAGES WITHOUT CONSENT

JAMES BROWNE NAMED AS MINISTER OF STATE FOR JUSTICE

Sharing an intimate image of someone without their consent will soon become a criminal offence, after new legislation was approved by cabinet today.

Under the laws, a person caught distributing image-based abuse may be jailed for up to seven years.

The Justice Minister is hopeful they will be enacted by the end of this year.
