It said that Amieka Mullings was arrested and charged earlier this week after she posted pictures in social media claiming that her ex-boyfriend is wanted for rape, assault and murder.
The Ministry of National Security said that “swift investigations by the police revealed that the information was false, malicious and tantamount to Malicious Communication under the Cyber Crimes legislation” and that Mullings was arrested, interrogated in the presence of her attorney and charged.
Meanwhile, National Security Minister, Robert Montague, is describing as entirely false the information circulating on social media alleging that persons are being abducted and killed so their organs can be harvested and sold.
The Ministry of National Security said that these messages are accompanied with pictures of victims. Investigations by the police have established that images of the deceased persons are not those of persons who were victims of the alleged crimes.
The statement quoted Montague as saying not a single case of any deceased person appearing with missing organs has been reported to the police or examined by the Institute of Forensic Science and Legal Medicine.
He reiterated that crime is a major concern for all Jamaicans and the security forces are working to prevent crime and improve the safety of Jamaican citizens.
