    They can be at the trial but they would not be allowed to release details of the suspect to anyone.
    The suspect simply being visible would be in breach of the legislation

    That is a possible loophole and one which will need correcting in a second reading.

    But they can't be because they are members of the public, also this basically gets rid of the right for members of the public to attend trials

    You could simply have them sign some form of NDA.

    Doesn't really work that way. To avoid absurdity, this would be interpreted as jurors operating in their capacity as jurors, whereas disclosure to other members of the public would be in their capacity as members of the public - as is already the case.

    Another thing to consider for the Second Reading, then.
