A Facebook executive arrested for refusing to give information about the company’s users to law enforcement was released from jail on Wednesday.
Diego Dzodan, Facebook’s most senior representative in Latin America, left a jail in Sao Paulo after one night in custody on a warrant issued by a judge in the northeastern state of Sergipe.
The warrant says Dzodan repeatedly failed to comply with a judicial order to cooperate with an investigation into drug trafficking and organized crime. The company had ignored requests to surrender user information from the WhatsApp messaging service, an application bought by Facebook in 2014.
