Facebook‘s vice president in Latin America, Diego Dzodan, was arrested Tuesday for not granting Brazilian authorities access to data that was allegedly necessary for a criminal investigation. Police said Dzodan had exhibited “repeated non-compliance with court orders” that asked Facebook to provide data associated with a drug trafficking probe. “This information was required to produce evidence to be used in an organized crime and drug trafficking investigation,” the police said in a statement. The data in question appears to include conversations conducted on Facebook-owned messaging app WhatsApp.
