False claim of former president’s death came from fake justice ministry account

A news bulletin claiming former president George Vassiliou had died has been withdrawn because the information had been tweeted by a fake account pretending to be from new justice minister Emily Yiolitis.

The ministry is filing a report with the police.

Apologies have been made for any distress caused.
