LINE Corporation declined to comment on a Thai police's attempt to seek information on the LINE messages of suspicious LINE users in Thailand.
The company whose headquarter is in Japan said it has not yet received any official request from the Thai police.
“Since LINE Corporation has not received any official request from the Thai police, we cannot provide any answers to the questions on this issue at this point,” read the official statement from LINE Corporation in answering query from the Nation.
Technology Crime Suppression Division (TCSD)‘s commander Pol Maj Ge Pisit Paoin earlier said the agency had asked Line Corporation in Japan to cooperate and TCSD officials will be sent to Japan to seek information about suspicious Line users in Thailand.
The Nation contacted LINE Corporation, the LINE’s service provider, yesterday for feedback and was told that the company would respond today. Although Pisit admitted that his agency had the means to keep track of people's chat records, it had decided to ask LINE Corporationto be ready to send a report on chat records when asked. His agency has yet to hear of the company's decision
