Facebook executive jailed in Brazil
Facebook’s attempt to do an Apple and ignore a court order in Brazil has resulted in its vice president being jailed.
It seems that coppers investigating drug trafficking in Brazil do not muck about. When they told Facebook that they needed help with their inquiries, and got a court order demanding just that, you do not say no.
Police in Sao Paulo have cuffed Facebook's most senior executive in Latin America Diego Dzodan (pictured), who is accused of ignoring a judicial order in a secret investigation involving organised crime and drug trafficking. The decision by Judge Marcel Montalvao follows the company's refusal to surrender user information from the WhatsApp messaging service, an application Facebook bought in 2014.
