Prof Mark Brin­cat claims he was hacked

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

With ref­er­ence to the story car­ried on page 3 of yes­ter­day’s edi­tion, it has been brought to our at­ten­tion that Pro­fes­sor Mark Brin­cat had mean­while posted the fol­low­ing on the Face­book page Save the Em­bryo Pro­tec­tion Act Malta: “It has been brought to my at­ten­tion that a car­toon pur­port­ing to have come from me was posted on this site. I did not send this. When it was sent, I was sleep­ing in Amsterdam. I was hacked and who­ever did that should be ashamed of him­self/her­self. I have ini­tially re­sponded by say­ing I was hacked then re­moved the site. It is not my style nor would I know how to load such a car­toon. I feel I am elo­quent enough to ex­press my­self with­out re­sort­ing to such ridicu­lous acts. I hope that I will not fall vic­tim to hack­ing again and con­demn such acts.”

Mean­while it is also clear from the con­text that the photo of Pro­fes­sor An­thony Ser­ra­cino In­glott, Chair­man of the Medicines Author­ity, has noth­ing to do with the Gy­nae­col­ogy Direc­tor men­tioned in the ti­tle.
