Brazilian Judge Bans “Whatsapp”

Popular chat Application, Whatsapp, has been banned in Brazil for 48 hours.

The ban by a Brazilian judge comes after a ruling that Whatsapp failed to comply with a court order on July.

A drug trafficking case involving a notorious gang had allegedly used Whatsapp services in their operations.
Following a fine for non compliance,Judge Sandra Regina Nostre Marques ordered a ban yesterday.

Mark Zuckerberg called the court judgment, “a sad day for Brazil”.

” Until today, Brazil has been an ally in creating an open internet. Brazilians have always been among the most passionate in sharing their voice online,” Zuckerberg said.
