Germany may block Telegram for refusing to cooperate with special services

Der Spiegel journalists published a new investigation dedicated to Pavel Durov, during which Germany's claims to his Telegram messenger were revealed.

As it turned out, the German Ministry of Justice requires the popular messenger to act in accordance with the law and start transferring user data to investigators. Among other things, the application is expected to promptly eliminate criminal content.

Sources note that the case on Telegram was opened due to the fact that he did not appoint a contact person to communicate with the authorities. This was also influenced by the fact that the messenger did not offer a criminal procedure for considering complaints about the content of criminal materials.

It is reported that because of this case, Telegram can be fined a maximum of 55 million euros. In addition, according to one of the leading officials of the German Ministry of Internal Affairs, if Telegram does not cooperate, Germany may block the messenger.
