New Democrat 
18 May 2010

Cowardly mischief makers, possibly with the backing of some higher-ups 
over the weekend hacked into the web-site of the New Democrat 
disfiguring it with a photograph and a message scrawled on it which 
read: "can you feel it, your rage feeds our power."

This paper was alerted to the hacking when series of telephone calls, 
some from Germany, England, the United States and Allafrica.com started 
coming in making inquiries. This is the second time the New Democrat 
website has been hacked.

The Management of the paper is now working on finding a solution and is 
also hiring professional IT experts to determined the source behind the 
hacking. All this is happening when this paper has been slapped with a 
libel suit and ordered to pay US$900,000.

Early this year, according to report, attempts were made to hack into 
the personal computer of former TRC Chairman Cllr. Jerome Verdier, and 
there are now unconfirmed reports that similar attempts are now aimed at 
the General Auditing Commission.
