Mark Zuckerberg Summoned by Iranian Court over WhatsApp and Instagram Complaints

Mark Zuckerberg Summoned by Iranian Court over WhatsApp and Instagram ComplaintsFacebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has been called to defend himself in an Iranian court of law, as part of a national quarrel with WhatsApp and Instagram which have apparently crossed one or two lines privacy-wise.

Iran has issued a call for ‘Zionist’ Mark Zuckerberg to beat a hasty path to the Middle East in order to defend himself in a court of law. Following a raft of complaints hurled at two entities owned by Facebook, the conservative court is summoning the firm’s CEO and founder.

Good luck with that one…

Iran’s battle with internet freedom is as hard-fought as it is complicated – suffice to say services like Instagram and WhatsApp have rubbed certain lawmakers up the wrong way. And while the courts speak of complaints being made by various parties, they haven’t given any details as to the identities of the parties or the specific nature of their complaints.

“According to the court’s ruling, the Zionist director of the company of Facebook, or his official attorney must appear in court to defend himself and pay for possible losses,” said Iranian internet chief Ruhollah Momen-Nasab.

Unsurprisingly, it isn’t widely expected that Mr. Zuckerberg will do as he’s told.
