Memogate: RIM refuses to share data
The Blackberry service provider said that its privacy laws prohibited disclosure of information to any 3rd party.
New Delhi: Research in Motion (RIM), the Canada-based Blackberry phone service provider, has reportedly refused to release the records of phone calls and text messages between Pakistani-American businessman Mansoor Ijaz and former Pakistan Ambassador to the US, Husain Haqqani, both embroiled in the raging memogate scandal rocking the country.
The judicial commission investigating the scandal had asked the government to send a formal request to RIM through the Canadian High Commission in Islamabad to obtain the records of conversation exchanged between the duo.
The Attorney General of Pakistan had sent in a sealed letter to the company asking for the release of data.
RIM told the commission that its privacy laws strictly prohibited disclosure of a customer's data to any other party without the customer's consent.
Meanwhile, in a separate hearing, Mansoor Ijaz's lawyer told the commission that his client was receiving threat calls with regard to the case.
