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
