Pavel Durov on Brazil’s Block on Telegram

Pavel Durov recently made a post in his channel in which he recalled that Telegram’s mission is “to preserve privacy and freedom of speech around the world”.

According to Durov, Telegram has always been on the side of protecting privacy and freedom of speech, no matter in what country it operates. When local laws contradict these principles, the messenger is forced to leave the market. For example, earlier, Telegram was banned in China, Iran and Russia because of its principled position on the issue of human rights.

A court in Brazil has requested data that Telegram is technically unable to provide, and the company is appealing the decision. Durov also noted that no matter how much it costs, Telegram will protect the interests of its users in Brazil and their right to private communication.

Telegram fined €5.1M by Germany

Germany announced Monday that it is issuing fines of 5.125 million euros ($5 million) against the operators of the messaging app Telegram for failing to comply with German law. The Federal Office of Justice said Telegram FZ-LLC hasn't established a lawful way for reporting illegal content or named an entity in Germany to receive official communication. Both are required under German laws that regulate large online platforms.

German officials said they have repeatedly failed in their attempts to serve papers to Dubai-based Telegram, despite support from authorities in the United Arab Emirates. A Germany-based law firm has since declared that it represents Telegram, but this wasn't enough to prevent the fines being issued, the Federal Office of Justice said. German federal police warned earlier this year that the app is becoming a “medium for radicalization,” used by some to target politicians, scientists and doctors for their role in tackling the coronavirus pandemic.

“The operators of messaging services and social networks bear a particular responsibility for acting against incitement to hatred and violence on their platforms,” Justice Minister Marco Buschmann said in a statement. “These legal requirements and this responsibility can't be avoided by trying to be unreachable.” The fine can be appealed.
