Pakistan threatens to block GoogleSeptember 19th, 2011 - 3:22 pm ICT by IANS
Islamabad, Sep 19 (IANS) Pakistan has threatened to block Google as its administrator was not helping the country’s premier investigating agency in nabbing people involved in cyber crime.
Interior Minister Rehman Malik said the administrators of internet-based search engines like Google and YouTube were not supporting the Federal Investigating Agency (FIA) to tackle cyber crime.
He added that Interpol’s help was being sought in this regard, reported The Nation.
If Google did not help FIA in future then a case would be registered against it, the minister said and warned that Google could be blocked in Pakistan for not cooperating.
Since terrorists involved in the Mumbai attacks had used the internet-based telephonic service based in the US, Malik suggested that action should be taken against the service provider according to the country’s laws for involvement in cyber crimes.
