Government requests in Eurasia

So far in 2013 TeliaSonera has been asked to restrict access to the network and/or to certain web sites some 20 times in our Eurasia operation. In none of the cases had we been allowed to disclose the requests, should we have wished to do so, due to local laws and regulation on confidentiality.

TeliaSonera aims to contribute to transparency by reporting on requests with serious impact on freedom of expression on our corporate website, to the extent possible. Examples of such requests are major shut-down of networks, mass surveillance, and blocking of access.
