Addresses of jurors released: Georgia authorities investigate threats in Trump case

Law enforcement agencies in Georgia are investigating suspected threats against the jury, who voted earlier this week to indict former US President Donald Trump for 2020 election conspiracy in the US state. The authorities wouldrespond quickly to any credible threat and ensure the safety of those who have performed their civic duty,” the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office said on Thursday (local time).

A grand jury called a grand jury on Monday brought 13 counts of indictments against Trump over his attempts to overturn the outcome of the 2020 presidential election. Personal details of the 23 jurors and their alternates — along with photos and addresses — were reportedly subsequently published on various websites, some of which have links to conspiracy theorists.

According to media regulator Media Matters, some of the websites “direct threats” were made and reference was made to a “hit list”.. In many US courts, the identity of the jury is kept secret. In the US state of Georgia, on the other hand, the names are made public at the end of the indictment.

It is the fourth indictment against the ex-president and candidate for the 2024 presidential election – and the second indictment relating to the 2020 election. (AFP)
