BlackBerry Blocked in Indonesia

BlackBerry Blocked in Indonesia - One of the requirements that prompted the government to Research In Motion (RIM) if you do not want blocked, and can continue doing business providing communication services in the homeland is to build a server or repeater in Indonesia.

Reportedly rampant, one reason for giving it easy for law enforcers of this country, when I want to express both the crime of terrorism or corruption.

 However, according to Gatot S Dewa Broto, Head of Information and Public Relations of the Ministry of Communications and Informatics, blocking measures that will be done by the government in the near term is not associated with the problem.

"The plan will be blocking the government against the BlackBerry service was due to the possibility of users accessing pornographic content via BlackBerry," said Billy at VIVAnews, January 10, 2010.

About Research In Motion was asked to install the server in Indonesia for government officials to conduct the investigation, said Billy, that's another matter.

"Currently, the Draft Regulation (RPP) on the Implementation of UU ITE will be the basis of the government to ask RIM to provide a server in Indonesia is not yet finished," said Billy. "So the government does not have a solid foundation to do the blocking," he said.

Gatot said the development at RIM's servers in Indonesia is still in the form of appeal only. "If the existing servers, all will be so much easier," he said.

As previously reported, after inaugurating a number of Echelon 1 in the ranks of the Ministry of Communications and Informatics, Friday, January 7 last, Menkominfo Tifatul Sembiring again revealed plans to block BlackBerry services in Indonesia. The reason, companies that do not comply with laws and regulations in force in this country.
