Cyber Crimes Unit to investigate video about ‘private beach’

NewsDay published an article on September 15, 2020, about the Cyber Crimes Unit’s takeover of the ‘private beach’ investigation. Here’s a summary:

  • After three days, the police located the woman who recorded the viral video at her supposed private beach and is now tasked with retrieving evidence from her cellphone and laptop.
  • The woman posted an Instagram video stating she couldn’t be charged for breaching COVID-19 regulations since the beach was her private land. The woman went under heavy scrutiny from the public while the police were trying to locate her.
  • Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh was among the scrutinizers, describing her as “the worst of young people in Trinidad and Tobago” at a virtual press conference.
  • The police’s cybercrime unit will have to help investigators retrieve sufficient evidence to lay charges such as the location of the media and the date of creation.
  • A time frame for investigations like these cannot be given as it depends on several factors such as the type of device and storage.
