Norwegian police takes facebook to court
Posted by African Press International on August 12, 2012
The police in Norway have now instituted a court case against facebook. They want the court to force facebook to release a password belonging to the 16 year old girl who is suspected to have been murdered.
Facebook account may help the police to catch the culprits. She disappeared 5 days ago.
Facebook says they have gone through the girl’s account and sees little relevance between her disappearance and the last activity she undertook in the account before the reported incident took place..
The police do not want to hear such and is now demanding for the release of her password. They have gone to go court seeking a court order to that effect.
They want to get into the account for details and decide the relevancy. They accuse facebook for the delay, telling them not to play detectives and investigators in the case.
It now remains to be seen whether the court will value life or blindly follow privacy laws that facebook claim must be respected..
