Investigations on 200 FB accounts!

The Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) has commenced investigations on 200 Facebook accounts for using social media to spread false rumours and instigating racial discord.

Several social media users had used social media to spread false rumours which resulted in the recent racial violence in the country, said an officer of the Cyber Crimes unit.

Meanwhile, the Police and CID are currently engaged in carrying out investigations for the arrest of more suspects involved in such activities.

Further internal investigations are underway regarding FB while investigations are also being conducted on several Wharsapp groups, said the Cyber Crimes unit officer.
