Sexual extortion ring caught


The ISF General Directorate, Public Relations Division announced in a statement yesterday that the Cybecrime and Intellectual Property Bureau at the Judicial Police Unit received a complaint filed by a person to the competent judiciary against an unknown woman involving extortion. The statement said the suspect contacted him via whatsapp and lured him to get intimate videos and pictures. The photos were sent to a third person who threatened to publish them if the plaintiff did not pay a sum of USD 25,000. Surveillance and follow up showed that the plaintiff was a victim of a trio gang who, upon interrogation, admitted what they did and one was referred to the competent authorities. The ISF Directorate, the statement went on to say, warned citizens to abstain from taking any indecent photos or videos of themselves and to report any similar incident.
