MINSK, June 16. /TASS/. The Belarusian Investigative Committee has sent a query to Telegram founder Pavel Durov, which calls on the messenger to take measures against channels publishing personal data of Belarusian law enforcement officers and calls for violence against them and members of their family, the BelTA news agency informed on Wednesday, citing the Investigative Committee.
The committee pointed out that earlier, Telegram blocked a number of Russian Telegram channels publishing personal data of protesters and members of the law enforcement in Russia, and calling for violence against Russian law enforcement officers and members of their families.
"Taking into account the precedent of blocking of such channels in the territory of the Russian Federation, the Investigative Committee of the Republic of Belarus has sent the following query to Pavel Durov and his team," the Belarus’ Investigative Committee stated.
