The Ministry of Justice of Germany confirms the information about the legal claims to the messenger Telegram, the agency expects a response from the company.
Earlier, the publication Spiegel reported that the messenger Telegram may face fines of up to 55 million euros in Germany due to the lack of a contact person for communication with the state services and insufficient measures to combat content that violates the law. According to the publication, the German Federal Ministry of Justice demands that Telegram вЂњobey the law,вЂќ the platform should be вЂњobliged to be accessible to the authorities, immediately remove criminal content and actively transmit user data to investigators.вЂќ
вЂњThis is true,вЂќ a ministry spokeswoman said, commenting on the Spiegel publication, adding that the Federal Office of Justice, which is part of the German Justice Ministry's system for legal inquiries, has sent two letters to Telegram in Dubai.
вЂњThe company has an opportunity to respond. Details of the individual processes have not been reported,вЂќ the ministry spokeswoman added.
