As was mentioned by CEO Judith Alpuche, there was frenzy over the weekend on social media as it pertains to the case of the child being taken away. It got so out of control that threats were even being issued not only to the Social Services worker but to her child and family as well.
As it pertains to social media, just last week Minister of National Security, John Saldivar had written on his Facebook timeline, quote, “there is a plain need for legislative intervention to deal with this scurrilous behaviour to protect individuals from such smear campaigns”. End of quote. That remark came following an attack on him via social media.
