Iranian official rejects lifting filtering on Twitter

Tehran, Iranian Deputy Prosecutor General Abdol Samad Khorram Abadi rejected news over lifting filtering on Twitter.

Khorram Abadi referred to various calls from Iranian ICT Minister Mohammad-Javad Azari Jahromi on possible lifting of filtering on Twitter, saying the issue will not be raised in Committee for Determining Examples of Criminal Web Content meeting.

ICT minister's request is against legal bases, he wrote in his local social media account.

Twitter is an American social media which is under enemies' control, he noted.
