Brazil Reverses Telegram Ban
The Supreme Court revoked its ban after the company complied by censoring President Jair Bolsonaro and other accounts
Brazil has lifted its ban on the messaging service Telegram after it complied with the Brazilian Supreme Court’s demands, which included censoring Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.
The Supreme Court blocked Telegram on Friday after it ignored orders to censor accounts that had allegedly shared misinformation.
Following the ban, however, Telegram CEO Pavel Durov apologized and worked to implement the court’s demands – claiming that the company had missed its emails.
According to reports, Telegram subsequently deleted “classified information shared by the account of President Jair Bolsonaro” and removed accounts belonging to a Bolsonaro supporter who had been accused of spreading “misinformation.”
The court revoked its ban on Sunday after Telegram implemented the measures and Telegram lawyer Alan Thomaz told the court that the company had “always been willing to collaborate with the authorities” and that what happened was simply “a misunderstanding regarding communication.”
Following the incident, Telegram also implemented other measures in Brazil in an effort to combat misinformation, including the promotion of “verified” content and warnings which inform users if a post is supposedly inaccurate.
Telegram is popular in Brazil and has been used extensively by Bolsonaro, who protested the court’s short-lived ban. The next Brazilian election is due to take place in October.
We stand by our previous post, noting due diligence was NOT performed by both the Brazilian Federal Police AS WELL AS the Supreme Court Justice Alexandre de Moraes. Telegram has already shown good faith in working with the Brazil government, the Brazilian government rewarded that good faith by being assumptive, divisive, and hostile.
Given the history of Moraes, one has to wonder if he would have done the same thing if Brazilian Telegram users were more favorable to Lula instead of Bolsonaro…
Number of followers on Telegram by Lula and Bolsonaro
Notice neither the Brazil Federal Police nor Justice Moraes never said who determined the information shared by their President on Telegram was classified as well as they never define what constitutes ‘misinformation’ - we are just supposed to take their word on it.
We used to take the word of Leftists, the MSM, Big Tech - which is why we are where we are today, fighting for our Liberty as well as our freedom.
Ball is still in Brazil’s court to provide a definite reason why Telegram was taken down.
The spirit of the law doesn’t provide Liberty…
