Seems like, now a days YouTube videos are creating a buzz. Just few days ago, a 14 minute trailer of an anti-Islam movie “Innocence of Muslims” released in YouTube and after that it sparked a wave of protests and violence in the Muslim world. Some Muslim countries like Bangladesh and Pakistan blocked YouTube in their country. Now, another new video in YouTube has created a buzz. Due to not removing this newly released video from YouTube, two Brazilian judges ordered individually to arrest the head of Google’s operations in Brazil, Fabio Jose Silva Coelho. Brazil’s federal police have arrested Coelho on Wednesday, September 26.
Brazilian Judge Flavio Peren ordered Google to remove two potentially libelous videos against running politician Alcides Bernal. The two videos were filled with negative remarks about Alcides Bernal. Court ruled that the two YouTube videos had violated Brazilian strict electoral law. The judge also ordered a statewide, 24-hour block of Google and its video sharing website, YouTube. But neither Google nor YouTube was blocked for a single moment in Brazil. Rather, Google reportedly refused to remove the videos from YouTube. As violating court’s order, judge Peren issued an arrest warrant for Brazilian Google executive Fabio Jose Silva Coelho.
On the other side, 14 minute trailer of anti-Islam movie “Innocence of Muslims” in YouTube has stirred the entire Muslim world. The people of Muslim world have great rage upon YouTube because the trailer/film can still be seen in some countries. Though U.S. judge denied to order removal of anti-Islam film from YouTube, another court ordered YouTube to remove the video clip of the film. But again, Google didn’t obey that court’s order.
However, last Tuesday, means on September 25, a judge in Mato Grosso do Sul ordered to arrest the head of Google’s operations in Brazil, Fabio Jose Silva Coelho. He was arrested on September 26, Wednesday; but CNN affiliate Band News reported that he had been released on the same day evening.
However, the Mountain View, Calif.-based company has decided to appeal, claiming that it wasn’t responsible for any of the videos posted on YouTube.
