German authorities think they can shut down Telegram


Germany could shut down Telegram if the messaging service, according to Reuters, “popular with far-right groups and people opposed to pandemic-related restrictions,” continues to violate German law. Home Secretary Nancy Faeser made the announcement in a comment posted on Wednesday.

“We cannot rule it out,” she told the weekly Die Zeit. Shutting down would be a serious and obviously last resort. You need to exhaust all other options first.”

She added that Germany is discussing with its partners in the European Union how to regulate Telegram.
