Drama unfolds as Brazil bans WhatsApp
A Brazilian high court has impeached the use of WhatsApp in the country following refusal of the social networking app to work with the government following a particular child porn case. WhatsApp failed to offer co-operation with the government even when there were instances of “sexually graphic photos of children on the app,” the court said.
Since WhatsApp doesn’t have an office in Brazil, Judge Luiz de Moura Correia filed the notice to SindiTelebrasil, an organization that represents Brazilian carriers even though the latter warns of an impending loss to personal and business user of the app.
An appeal has been filed against the ruling so WhatsApp is still working for the time being.
