Supreme Court throws out Telegram suit to Federal Security Service

MOSCOW, Mar 20 (PRIME) -- RussiaТs Supreme Court rejected on Tuesday a lawsuit of messenger Telegram to cancel an order of the Federal Security Service regulating provision of its officers with information to decode messages of users by organizers of information distribution.

International human rights group Agora, acting on behalf of Telegram, asked the Supreme Court to declare the Federal Security ServiceТs order dated July 19, 2016 void.

Getting the decoding keys will enable the service to access messages of all users.

The service said it will monitor correspondence of only some users without a court decision, but if it needs more data, the service will go to court.

A Telegram spokesperson said the messenger will contest the courtТs decision. УWeТll file an appeal anyway,Ф the spokesperson said.
