Anti-crime activist Yusuf Abramjee is opening criminal charges with the South African Police Service (SAPS) after a fake video of him allegedly speeding was circulated on social media
“The video shows a vehicle which does not even belong to me allegedly speeding. The registration number belongs to someone else,” said Abramjee.
He said intimidation and crimen injuria and criminal defamation complaints were being registered.
“The presumed anonymity of social media is overrated. Metadata from the video will be analysed and the culprits will be tracked down," he added.
Abramjee said he has received anonymous threats since he posted the video of a motorist allegedly speeding at over 300km/h in Johannesburg recently.
“I will not be intimidated,” he warned.
“These fraudsters will be hunted down and brought to book.
The owner of the vehicle captured on the video, alleged, to be Abramjee, was travelling on the R55 when he was chased in what he suspected could have been a hijacking attempt. He too will be registering a criminal complaint of intimidation with SAPS.
