Minister of Health and Wellness Dr. Christopher Tufton has hit back against social media allegations about his personal life, calling them “vile, filthy and scandalous.”
He has gone to the police and directed his lawyers to find and prosecute those behind allegations about his personal life.
Dr. Tufton said the allegations and innuendos on social media are “aimed at besmirching and tainting my good name and reputation.”
Dr. Tufton who also called the allegations made against him “vicious and false” said they and have caused “great pain and suffering.” He said they were aimed at “damaging my career as well as causing emotional distress.”
In a statement Thursday afternoon, July 16, Dr. Tufton said he has reported the matter to the Counter Terrorism and Organized Crime Division (CTOC) of the police force. He said he has also instructed his lawyers to move to prosecute these “cyber criminals” and to seek recourse in the civil courts when the identities of those originating the social media posts of the allegations are known.
