The Iranian authorities had a case against Durov because of the popularity of Telegram among the terrorists.
According to the Iranian law enforcement bodies, the messenger is widely used by ISIL terrorists.
“Telegram to the popular terrorists of the Islamic state and other extremists, human traffickers, drug dealers, and distributors of child pornography,” – said the Prosecutor of Tehran Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi.
Meanwhile, law enforcement bodies of Iran are not announced what exactly they accuse Durov.
What exactly accuse Durova, is unclear. The founder of Telegram, commenting on the situation, said he was unpleasantly surprised by such decision of the authorities of Iran because the messenger is constantly engaged in the fight against terrorist content and child porn.
“I think that the real causes of the incident are completely different,” — said Durov.
Telegram is quite popular in Iran, where the authorities pay great attention to it and fight they can’t control the dissemination of information.
