Lawyers who defended the interests of Telegram in court against Roskomnadzor, were asked to postpone the meeting for a “reasonable” time. This was reported by the head of the organization “Agora” Pavel Chikov.
According to the lawyer, the court violated the requirements of the civil procedural code and did not send the text of the claim on time, and did not give any objections and evidence. Chikov asked to eliminate the violations and postpone the meeting.
There are no objective reasons to consider the claim in an emergency procedure, which is not provided for in procedural law for such cases.
The meeting on Telegram blocking will be held on April 13 in Tagansky court of Moscow. Roskomnadzor asked the court to immediately block Telegram if it satisfies the claim and the messenger will not give the encryption keys from the users’ correspondence.
Pavel Durov forbade lawyers to attend the meeting on the suit of Roskomnadzor, “in order not to legitimize the frank farce by his presence.”
