“Mo pou gat to répitasion. Personn pa pou kapav fer mwa nannié…” Not happy after having hacked the Facebook account of his former girlfriend, a young man who studies finance in Australia have gone deeper into his ideas. He asked her Rs 50,000 for not revealing intimate photos of her on Facebook.
The victim aged 22 complained to the National Computer Board (NCB) and the police. Australian police, the Australian High Commission in Mauritius and the representative of Mauritius in Australia were alerted.
The woman, in her testimony, said she met her former boyfriend on Facebook. At that time, she was still a minor. Their relationship lasted two years. But after their break, the young man, a resident of Goodlands harassed her by pirating her Facebook account several times. The first time was in January 2015. She then went to the NCB for a complaint.
She argues that her ex called her at home to threaten her. “Mo pou met to foto lor Facebook,” he reportedly told her, before demanding money from her. This time, the young woman accompanied by her parents went to the police station of the central Barracks to register a Precautionary measure.
But the rejected lover has recurred by creating three new fake accounts in recent weeks. In response, the young woman went to the Cybercrime Unit at the Central Criminal Investigation Department to file a complaint on 25th and 26th of June. Accompanied by her parents, she even went to Goodlands to inform the parents of her ex-boyfriend of his activities in Australia. This has not so far hindered him from his acts.
