The blockade was requested by the Federal Public Ministry of the Amazon because the company failed to comply with a judicial determination that agreed to provide data records and to break the confidentiality of WhatsApp application message to an investigation that runs on judicial secrecy.

"By giving absolute protection to privacy, the company crosses the boundary, creating an enabling environment for communication between criminals, favoring those who commit serious crimes, as terrorism, seizure, drug trafficking etc. ", said the procurator of Alexandre Jabur Republic, the requestor, em nota publicada no site do MPF-AM.

According to the prosecutor, Facebook argued that the content related to users are under the responsibility of business operators in the United States and Ireland, which would require an international cooperation procedure to comply with the decision.

When he accepted the request of the MPF, Justice claimed that the decision reinforced the provision of the Civil Marco Internet (lei 12.965/14) applying Brazilian law even for companies based abroad.

The Amazonas Federal prosecutors said the Facebook resource block was a first alternative to try to get the requested information before ordering the suspension of the application operation, as recently occurred.
