MINISTER of Health Terrence Deyalsingh says his Facebook account was hacked.
He made the revelation in responding to a question from the media during the virtual news conference on Friday.
His Facebook account had him replying to a person to “Mute your TV during question time.”
It was in response to an individual who had commented – “we have to listen to those MATT apologies for journalists asking irrelevant, dotish and vexing questions?”
The original post informing about the news conference on Friday was still posted on Deyalsingh’s page, but the comment has been removed.
In reply to question form the media on Friday, he said, “I will never, ever, make a post that is derogatory to media… or anyone else.”
He said, “There is so much unwelcome activity on Facebook that we have to manage that.”
Al-Rawi said, “A lot of news is put out that is misleading. I use that term loosely, in inverted commas, news. Thanks for bringing it to our attention, but we’re literally working almost 24 hours a day.”
