National Algerian Gendarmerie has set up early this month a unit in charge of countering cybercrimes, including blackmail and defamation by using social interaction network of facebook.

cyber-gendarmerie

This specialized unit is called “cyber-gendarmerie.”

This unit is in charge of countering cybercrimes, through conducting E- researches by E-patrols to counter cybercriminals and hackers tending to offense the private life of others and destroying websites of private and public institutions.

The commander of that unit said that people are invited to file their claims to the cyber-gendarmerie, in case they are subject to cybercrimes.

The cyber criminals will face sentences varying from 2 to 5 years, and a fine, depending on the degree of the crime and the authorities wont show any kind of tolerance for them.

Thank you for raising awareness on this issue. I have been a victim for several months now. A total stranger from a foreign country has chosen me as her target. When someone is spreading malicious, false and defamatory statements about a person's character and integrity to others and exposing them on a website that is sufficient grounds for a lawsuit. It's a shame that things like this occur in today's world, but people like these who target innocent victims should be penalized whether it's serving time or paying for the harm and damages they have caused.
