A Justice Ministry spokesman has filed a complaint with the National Police after the ministry’s Facebook page was hijacked to broadcast opposition rally coverage on Saturday, the first day of the two-week commune election campaign period.
Kim Santepheap, the spokesman, said yesterday afternoon that his personal Facebook and email accounts had also been hacked, and that he had not been able to access any of the three accounts since the attack on Saturday afternoon.
“The hacker shared the CNRP election campaign from Sam Rainsy’s [Facebook] page” on the ministry’s page, Mr. Santepheap said, referring to the former president of the CNRP who is living in exile in France. He did not know who had hacked the accounts, he said, but he surmised that the hacker had “bad intentions to take data and change data to make the public confused.”
