Journalist threatened via Twitter
The Gumilla Center is a research institution that also conducts social activities; it is run by Jesuit priests. Back in November 2011, the person who posted on his Twitter account said that he would call Díaz, and he did call him three times. Seeing that he never answered the calls the caller left a voice message, Díaz said.
The so-called hacker group known as N33 sent several direct messages to his Twitter account with a threatening and intimidating tone. They claimed they would attack him because of statements he made via several media outlets about the cyber attacks, and also for "working with priests". The attackers insisted on the fact that "he was going to be taught a lesson".
It is presumed that this is the same group of attackers who targeted the accounts of nearly 30 Venezuelan politicians and Twitter users during 2011. Although the attacks have been reported to the Attorney General's Office by the victims, no official statement has yet been made by the Venezuelan authorities, Díaz concluded.
