In a letter sent to the Minister of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) Alexandre de Moraes, Telegram requests that the decision to block the channel of the elected federal representative Nikolas Ferreira (PL-MG) be reconsidered on the social network.
No document, obtained by journalist da CNN Gabriela Coelho, the company justifies the request by saying that it is the official channel of an elected representative, with more than 277,000 subscribers. “I have not been provided with any foundation or justification for the comprehensive blocking of the aforementioned channel, this is, the specific content that would be considered illegal is not presented.”
The social network requests that the complete removal of the channel be reconsidered and that the publications with illegal content be specified so that they are occasionally blocked.
The document criticizes the decision previously given by the minister as “disproportionate” and “irrational” and says that it collides directly with freedom of expression and with the prohibition of censorship provided for in the Federal Constitution.
The company still stated, not officiated, that the orders of the STF “are being sent on a generic basis, request for blocking/removal in an abragent manner and without expedient deadline, or that we understand to be totally disproportionate and bear no relation to what is objective” .
No document, or Telegram also reported that he complied with the other determinations of the minister and blocked two channels linked to the presenter Bruno Aiub, known as Monark, and a channel linked to influencer Paula Marisa.
