Extra protection for MEP whose website was hacked

MEP Eleni Theocharous

MEP Eleni Theocharous will be getting an extra police guard after her personal website was attacked by a Turkish hacker group earlier this month, reports said.
According to news outlet Sigmalive, Theocharous, who also heads the Solidarity Movement, had asked for an increase in her guard following the incident.
The outlet said her request was approved by the cabinet, which raised her security detail to three from two.
Her site, www.elenitheocharous.com was hacked by hacker group Aslan Neferler Tim – Lion soldiers’ team – which redirected to a video featuring the speeches of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Last year, the same group hacked Armenian government websites.
In February, Azerbaijan issued international arrest warrants for three MEPs, including Theocharous, over their visit to breakaway Nagorno-Karabakh during a referendum earlier that month.
According to reports, the Azerbaijani general prosecutor’s office included Theocharous, Frank Engel from Luxembourg, and Jaromír Štětina from the Czech Republic on its most wanted list.
