The City of Johannesburg has brought a criminal case against the person who hacked into its billing system last week, it said on Monday.

It laid the charge at the Hillbrow police station in Johannesburg, said spokesman Gabu Tugwana. The police could not confirm whether a case had been opened.

“Criminal acts of this nature will not go unpunished and the city intends to send out a strong message that a deliberate and malicious breach of this nature will not be tolerated,” said Tugwana.
