The Police are urging members of the public not to increase the pain and suffering of victims of crime by posting inaccurate and unsubstantiated information on social media networks.
"We are very concerned that irresponsible persons are placing damaging and false information on the social media networks. Such unwarranted and inhumane actions only serve to inflame the personal tragedy and grieve of victims who are already facing great personal turmoil and agony.
"I am appealing to members of the public to desist from this action and to act more responsibly when using the social media networks," said Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of the Operations Portfolio, Glenmore Hinds.
DCP Hinds said the posting of erroneous and incorrect reports on social media yesterday including the use of gruesome photographs have impacted on victims in a very negative way.
