Three people have been arrested in connection with the alleged naming of a rape victim on Twitter.
The comments were allegedly made following the jailing of Sheffield United and Wales striker Ched Evans, who was found guilty for raping a 19-year-old woman at a Premier Inn in Rhyl.
North Wales Police said three people had been arrested as part of their investigation into the alleged naming of the victim on social media, who under law has anonymity for her lifetime.
Two men have been arrested for breaching Section 5 of the Sexual Offences Amendments Act and another man was arrested on suspicion of malicious communication.
They have been detained at a Sheffield police station.
North Wales Police DCI Steve Williams said: “These arrests were made with the assistance of South Yorkshire Police and are part of a series of planned arrests we will be making during this ongoing investigation.”
Evans was jailed for five years on Friday at Caernarfon Crown Court.
The court ruled the woman was too drunk to consent to sex.
