Sao Paulo, Mar. 6 (ANI): Facebook vice-president Diego Dzodan, who was arrested due to a dispute over the company’s encrypted WhatsApp messaging service for use in a secretive drug trafficking investigation, has said that the Brazilian jail authorities treated him with respect.
Dzodan was arrested on Tuesday and was released the next day after an appeals judge overturned a court order to arrest him, Reuters reported.
“I was treated with a lot of respect,” Dzodan said at a Saturday conference on Latin American business trends organized by students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Sloan School of Management.
“The way that information is encrypted from one cell phone to another, there is no information stored that could be handed over to authorities,” he said.
“We are extremely committed to Brazil. Brazil is a huge market that really likes Facebook. We are very focused on the long term,” Dzodan added. (ANI)
