Intelligence Ministry prioritizes countering Telegram channels

Six Telegram admins sentenced to hefty prison terms

The proposed Minister of Intelligence, Mahmoud Alavi, went to Majlis on August 9, 2017, to layout his plans to a group of Majlis representatives, according to the state-run ISNA news agency.
“Regarding the admins of internal channels, we can summon people and hand them over to the judicial system… In the past four years, the Ministry of Intelligence has blocked thousands of Telegram channels with anti-religious content and has referred the admins of these channels to the Judiciary”, he said.
