Previously, Gnosticplayers claimed that the sole purpose of these data breaches was to put Pakistan in the timeline and give a positive image of the country but now according to description on sample data the hacker is protesting the arrest of George Duke-Cohan, a teen who was arrested for DDoS attack on ProtonMail and making fake bomb threats.
Cohan was arrested by the United Kingdom’s National Crime Agency however he is also wanted by the US authorities over cyber attacks. Although Cohan was sentenced to 3 years in prison his prison term in the US was extended by 65 years.
“George Duke-Cohan is a young and talented boy, instead of giving him a chance, the UK govt sends him to prison for three years. Now, he’s been told by the American government, that he faces 65 years for the offense he was already sentenced to three years in the UK. It means he will be judged twice?,” Gnosticplayers wrote in their message.”
Gnosticplayers is also vowing to release more data “if Cohen is not given a fair justice.”
“May this upcoming release of dumps serve as a reminder: When countries claim to respect their citizens, they have duty protect them. I wouldn’t be surprised whether GeorgeDuke-Cohan ends his life, the UK gov already destroyed him and doing this is like sentencing him to death. If he is not given a fair justice during the upcoming days, weeks, years, more data will be released,” Gnosticplayers threatened.
