The right to have your comment taken down and used in evidence against him?

The BBC is reporting a judge in Derry has refused bail in a case of alleged ‘attempted grievous bodily injury’ because ‘he had read that a travel website had advised visitors not to come to the city because of the violence there’.

The only travel website I’ve come across mentioning violence in Derry is VirtualTourist and it only has a single reader comment on the topic not an advisory. I’ve scanned through the much larger Trip Advisor and can’t see anything there.

Has anyone seen anything more substantive on another website? Should websites really be impacting on bail?
