Brazil Froze $6m of Facebook's Funds

A Brazilian court has just blocked reals worth $6.07m of Facebook’s funds after WhatsApp failed to turn over messages sought in a drugs case.


According to Brazil’s federal police, Facebook-owned WhatsApp has defied repeated orders to turn over messages of suspected members of an international drug ring under investigation. The police needed WhatsApp data to prove links between those captured in recent raids and their confederates in a number of countries.

The problem is that WhatsApp is end-to-end encrypted, which means that the company itself has no access to the messages or pictures sent between its users. In other words, by any stretch of imagination WhatsApp could not possibly comply with the order. However, this explanations do not satisfy the Brazilian authorities: after repeated failure to turn over the data, a Brazilian judge froze Facebook’s funds equal to WhatsApp’s accumulated fines for non-compliance in the case. The judge froze Facebook’s funds because WhatsApp has no bank accounts in Brazil.

It must be mentioned that the court did not use provisions of the local Internet law which allows courts to shut down service in case of non-compliance with court orders. This turn of events is the latest salvo in a long-running fight between Brazil and WhatsApp. Earlier, another judge shut WhatsApp down for 72 hours in a similar case, which angered WhatsApp’s 100 million Brazilian users. However, at the time the shutdown was lifted after 24 hours by another court, when Facebook once again explained that WhatsApp does not store user messages and that even if it did, it would not be able to read them due to the end-to-end encryption. Later, Brazil also arrested and detained a Facebook vice-president for Latin America. In that case, the company said it had cooperated with investigators to the full extent of its ability.

Cerebus1972 avatarGood. The only reason for a app that lets you secretly communicate between 2 people is for criminal purposes. I can see no other reasoning for such a thing, except maybe governmental reasons.
