Lawyer Says MP’s Facebook Was Hacked

July 24, 2013

Nandi_Davis_200pxX200px_72dpi[Updated] A lawyer representing One Bermuda Alliance MP Nandi Outerbridge has stated that screenshots of messages — presently being widely circulated via email — were not sent by her client.

The messages, which Bernews is unable to repeat, would be considered by many to be highly offensive.

Katie Tornari of Marshall, Diel & Myers told Bernews that her client’s Facebook account was hacked, and the messages were sent “without her knowledge” and that the matter was being investigated by the police.

Speaking with the police, they were unable to confirm to Bernews if an investigation had been launched, however we will update as able.

Nandi Outerbridge was elected in the 2012 General Election, winning the C#2 St. George’s West seat in a three way battle which saw the OBA win by by 4 votes. Mrs Outerbridge received 359 votes, the PLP’s Renee Ming received 355, while former MP Kim Swan — who was running as an Independent — received 214 votes.

Update July 31: One week later, we are still unable to get any form of confirmation from the Police that they are investigating an allegation of hacking. We have sent multiple emails and made multiple calls, however the Police have not yet confirmed that a complaint about the alleged hacking has been made.

[Update: As a note due to issues arising, comments of a certain nature cannot be permitted for legal reasons, although Bernews has declined to accommodate requests made by lawyer Katie Tornari "that all comments on the above named article be blocked", with the lawyer noting to Bernews that they "reserve our client's right to bring proceedings should there be any comments that we consider to be libelous."]

    If your account was hacked, why exactly do you need a lawyer????

    Just give your phone and computer to the police so they can see you didn’t access said account.

      ‘Hacked’ usually translates to having a crappy password that someone managed to guess. So had someone logged in at a different location, she’d be none the wiser – and turning over her phone or computer would amount to nothing. Messages sent are synchronized across all mediums.

      You’d need to contact Facebook to acquire the IP address responsible..

  9. Just One says:

    Freedom of speech. You can only speak what they allow you to speak.

  11. media says:

    Bernews. Badly written first line. It would be better to use the word representing instead of for.

  12. Tough Love says:

    Easy remedy. Just change your password and report it to Facebook. Not sure why the police would get involved for this. People’s Facebook pages get hacked on a daily. Why are police hours being wasted on this?

    • Time Shall Tell says:
