Research in Motion (RIM) the manufacturer of BlackBerry has once again refused Govt of Pakistan to provide details of communication that tool place between Mansoor Ijaz and former Pakistani ambassador to US, Hussain Haqqani.
The Judicial Commission has asked the Attorney General of Pakistan to resend the request to RIM in order to obtain Blackberry data.
Whereas, in another move, RIM found it impossible to avoid Indian Govt request of giving access to its serves on the security grounds. RIM has installed its server in Mumbai to provide mechanism of lawful interception of its famous messenger service.
RIM has been denying continuously to make an exception to its policy of providing secure communication. Whereas, Indian Govt and security agencies has been following RIM to create a mechanism of providing real time access to its most secured and encrypted Blackberry Enterprise Service (BES) owing to terrorist activities particularly after 26/11 incident.
After RIM, Indian Govt has also asked Nokia t provide a similar access to its push email service.
Perhaps, Pakistani Govt will have to walk on the same path as Indians have done.
