The Ministry of Information and Communication Technology confirms that the use of Blackberry phone services does not go against the Kingdom's computer law.

Information Technology Control Center Director Aree Jiworarak elaborated that all information transmitted through the smart phone Blackberry is kept in log files in servers in Canada. In compliance with the Computer-related Crime Act regulation, the system allows a 90-day trackback of full conversation logs including all users details such as BB pin, time of call, or call destination.

Mr Aree explained that any wrongdoing related to Blackberry use could be traced by authorities through local mobile service operators such as DTAC, AIS, or TrueMove. He noted however, that the regulation does not apply to Blackberry's main international purveyor but assured that the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology is contacting the firm to rectify the problem.
