By A Correspondent | ZimEye | Facebooker, Felistas Murata has been found to have used a video without permission on her social media platforms to intimidate witnesses linked to a case filed under CR 124/11/20 at the Rotten Row Magistrates Court in Malborough. This follows her earlier conviction in 2023 for related offenses. Additionally, Murata was deported from Heathrow Airport on April 28, 2024, after being found to marketed on FB and illegally exported unauthorised goods into the UK while abusing her visa.

The video she misused was originally created to support legal complainants, but was altered by Murata to falsely present herself as innocent amidst these legal troubles. Murata is also confirmed to have orchestrated a group to misuse Facebook’s content reporting mechanisms.

As a result, the account of one of her victims, named Mildred Meda has been restored of its monetisation facilities.

Murata was also found to have run a Ponzi scheme, which led to substantial financial losses for numerous individuals, with documented losses exceeding GBP 15,000 from one victim alone. Links and documentation provided by victims substantiate these claims, indicating a pattern of fraudulent behaviour facilitated through her Facebook posts.

The original creator of the video has called on Facebook to remove the content and to impose further sanctions on Murata, underscoring the urgency for social media platforms to enforce strict measures to curb misuse and protect users from online harassment and intimidation.

This evolving situation alerts accomplices and supporters of Murata to the potential legal ramifications they could face, as authorities tighten enforcement based on solid legal precedents in both the US and UK. The case serves as a critical reminder of the vigilance needed by digital platforms to detect and deter misuse, protecting users from fraud and harassment while maintaining the integrity of online spaces.


The following are some of the key statutes and legal principles that might be relied upon in prosecuting such cases:

Computer Misuse Act 1990: This Act would address illegal activities conducted online, including hacking or the misuse of social media platforms to intimidate witnesses or commit fraud.
