Dominican judge sends 4 suspected Anonymous hackers to jail

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic — A judge in the Dominican Republic has ordered four suspected members of the Anonymous hacker group to be held in jail for three months while an investigation of their activities is held.

Although no charges have been filed, the Dominican legal system allows for preventative detention.

Not much has been revealed about the case, except that prosecutors claim six people hacked into government websites and caused monetary damages.  Of the four detained two are young adults and the other two are minors and face a different court system.

The suspects defense attorney, Carlos Guerrero denies the allegations.

  1. A few people in power think they will stop the Anonymous movement by locking up some of the freedom fighters. There is no stopping that movement though….it’s to big and affects millions of people world-wide. It is only going to get bigger.
