The Ministry of Investment, Innovation and Social Development's Cyber Security Unit has requested that remove and investigate an online petition that falsely claimed to be sponsored by the Cabinet Secretary of the Cayman Islands Government.

Chief Information Security Officer Pamela Greene wrote today after becoming aware that the online petition was circulating. In her correspondence Ms Greene noted, 'It is our belief that the petition is for the purpose of spreading misinformation, by originally claiming to be sponsored by the Cabinet Secretary. The petition may also be for fraudulent intent, as supporters are presented with an option to donate $7 dollars to get it on the agenda.'

She urged members of the public to be aware of the potentially misleading intent of the petition, and encouraged any persons who may have signed, or made a donation in good faith, to report the matter to the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service. is an online platform that allows users to generate and host petitions on assorted issues of public concern.
