THE man at the heart of the Cambridge Analytica (CA) data-mining scandal is fearful about coming to Trinidad and Tobago.
This was revealed by Attorney General Faris Al-Rawi at a press conference at his office in Port-of-Spain yesterday.
Al-Rawi said Christopher Wylie was willing to testify before a Joint Select Committee of the Parliament but “he fears for his life in coming to Trinidad and Tobago.”
The AG said the government would make arrangements to guarantee his safety so he can shed some light on the internet hacking and micro-targeting as it related to TT.
Whistleblower Wylie has alleged that Aggregate IQ, a company set up alongside CA, in 2013 worked for a former national security minister on a project that attempted to harvest browsing data of the TT population.
