Woman charged with posting false info about ex-boyfriend
The police arrested a woman on Monday for using social media to post malicious information about her ex-boyfriend.
She is 35-year-old Amieka Mullings.
Mullings was arrested and charged under the Cybercrimes Act, after she posted pictures on social media claiming that her ex-boyfriend is wanted for rape, assault and murder.
According to a release from the Ministry of National Security, swift investigations by the police revealed that the information was false, malicious, and tantamount to malicious communication under the cybercrimes legislation.
Mullings was arrested, interrogated in the presence of her attorney and charged.
Persons are, therefore, asked to exercise caution in the material they post online and transmit to others, as they may unwittingly be participating in criminal acts.
