The order is directed at app stores, ISPs, and backbone services.

It states Telegram has failed to take down accounts linked to a target of the investigation, a supporter of President Bolsonaro.

The order banning Telegram also puts citizens on notice of a BRL100,000 fine (~1000x the national minimum wage) for circumventing the ban.
