DETECTIVES are seeking the public’s help in identifying over a dozen men they want to speak to over in Belfast.

The images relate street between Monday, December 3,2012 and Saturday, January, 5, 2013.

Rioting erupted in Belfast and Carrickfergus after Belfast City Council voted on December 3 to only fly the Union flag on designated days.

Since then loyalist protests have been held across Belfast and other parts of Northern Ireland.

Although organisers called for peaceful protests, many descended into violence.

To date, detectives from Operation Dulcet which was set up to probe the protests and resulting rioting, have arrested 215 people.

Of those, 163 people have been charged with a range of offence offences, including riotous assembly, hijacking of vehicles, attacks on politicians’ offices, threats made against politicians, unnotified processions and social media based offences.

The PSNI have also revealed that 52 people have either been reported for taking part in an unnotified or unlawful public procession or for obstructing a road.

The officer leading Operation Dulcet, Detective Superintendent Sean Wright, said: “We have been clear from the outset that if you break the law, you will face the consequences and we stand firm on this.

“Anyone engaged in illegal activity will be dealt with appropriately and proportionately.

“I’m hopeful that the wider community will help us identify these individuals.

“But I would also encourage the individuals featured to contact my team directly – in doing so they will minimise the impact on themselves, their family and their community.

“It is in everybody’s interest – as well as in the interest of justice – that those responsible are dealt with appropriately.

“I would urge anyone who may have information to bring it forward,” the senior officer added.

Anyone can help identify any of the individuals to contact detectives at the Major Incident Room on 028 90 901775 from 9am to 10pm daily.
