State official charged over Net hacking
A WARRANT of arrest was authorised in the Bellville Specialised Commercial Crime Court yesterday for a woman accused of hacking the internet system of Parliament’s operations officer.
Cleopatra Mosana, who was employed by Home Affairs at the time, failed to appear in court. The warrant would be issued if she failed to appear by December 11.
Mosana faces 33 charges of violating legislation involving the protection of internet-related communications.
According to the charge sheet, Mosana allegedly hacked Tango Lamani’s internet system between April and June 2011.
In September, the prosecutor told the court her lawyer asked that Mosana be excused from attending the November proceedings, as she now lived in Pretoria. – Sapa
