In addition, the branch has identified six more people who were charged in June of last year, but whose names were held back until now.
Most of the charges include taking part in a riot, mischief, and break and enter, while some people are also charged with assault and having their faces masked.
So far, charges have been approved against 194 people, and 133 of them have pled guilty, with 65 already having been sentenced.
Crown prosecutors are still reviewing possible charges against more than 100 other suspects.
