Ravi to file complaint with CID over fake FB, Twitter account

RaviFinance Minister Ravi Karunanayake is to file a complaint with the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) over a fake Facebook and Twitter account.

Karunanayake says it has been brought to his notice that a fake Facebook account accompanied by an interconnected Twitter account is being carried out under his name.

The fake account, @RavikOfficial is being promoted as the official Facebook and the Twitter Account of the Minister.

The Minister says he has no connections whatsoever with these two pages which publishes news detrimental to the interests of the national unity Government and the coexistence of the Sri Lankan society.

“I have informed my officials to make a complaint with the CID in these connections. Further it has already been brought to the attention of the CERT (Computer Emergency Readiness Team), a National Centre for Cyber Security in the country which functions as a division of LK Domain Registry with academic partners to provide computer emergency response services to the public and private sector institutions in Sri Lanka,” he said.
