AN unemployed young woman yesterday asked that she be forgiven for creating a fake Facebook account of a friend before putting up indecent messages to defame her.

Sivani Chand, 18, appeared before Magistrate Sufia Hamza where she pleaded guilty to one count of indecently annoying a person.

The court was told that between October and December last year, Chand created a fake account under the name of the complainant, Anshoo Priya Singh.

The two had been in bad terms for some time and this was the whole reason the accused created the account.

It was revealed that in the fake account, Chand wrote the complainant had slept with her boss and this was the reason she got the job.

She also posted indecent messages and photos in the account.

Chand admitted to the charge and informed the court she would never repeat the mistake to the complainant whom she stays with at Wailea Settlement in Vatuwaqa.

She added she was sorry for what she had done. Chand will be sentenced on February 30.
