Pakistan may block Google and YouTube for Non-cooperation

ISLAMABAD - Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Saturday informed the administrations of Internet based search engines like Google or YouTube were not extending their support with FIA to nab the people involved in cyber crime and Interpol help was being sought in this regard. 

He said that a case would be registered against the Google administrator if it did not help FIA in future and threatened that Google could be blocked in Pakistan for non-cooperation. 

 Rehman Malik also disclosed that the terrorists involved in Mumbai attacks had used the Internet based telephonic service based in US and proposed that action should be taken against the international service provider according to their laws for their involvement in cyber crimes. 

He admitted that some people were involved in grey trafficking in connivance with FIA and Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) adding that zero tolerance would be adopted against such elements. 

“We can save Rs 300 to 500 million dollars annually of the national kitty by curbing grey trafficking,” he added. 

Chairman PTA who was flanked by minister said that better coordination between FIA and PTA needed to curb grey trafficking.
