GEORGETOWN – Leader of the main opposition People’s Progressive Party (PPP), Bharrat Jagdeo says unknown people have been trying to access his personal email accounts.

Speaking during his weekly press conference on Thursday, Jagdeo told reporters that he was informed by Google of attempts being made to access his emails.

“There have been several attempts to hack my email over the past three days, several attempts and I have been notified several times by Google,” said the Opposition Leader.
