Green party leader Charalambos Theopemptou’s Facebook profile was temporarily hacked and had profile pictures displaying Isis terrorist fighters on Thursday morning.

Speaking to the Cyprus Mail, he said he would not be filing a report to the police as it wouldn’t amount to much and saw it as a reminder that he was long overdue to change his password.

He was made aware of the hack while he was speaking live on tv and attributed it to being targeted because he was supportive of the cause women in Iran are fighting for.Charalambos Theopemptou hack

“Nonetheless, I later realised that these are the kind of pictures that if Facebook sees, it immediately deletes your account for good. It made me think that it might even be someone from here in Cyprus that did it for other reasons.”

Theopemtou said he still had access to his account so he deleted all the contentious pictures, logged out of any devices and changed his password.
