Jakarta, 17 Jan. (AKI/Jakarta Post) - Discussions on the filtering of pornographic content topped the agenda during a meeting between BlackBerry smartphone manufacturer, Research in Motion (RIM), and Indonesian government representatives on Monday.

According to communications and information technology spokesman, Gatot S. Dewabroto, content filtering was "the most critical" issue during the meeting.

"Filtering is the issue that must be responded to [by RIM] with a yes or no by compliance," he said after the meeting.

RIM and Indonesian government officials held a meeting after communications and information technology Mmnister Tifatul Sembiring threatened to block several services available on BlackBerry smartphones if RIM failed to comply with the government's requirements by the end of January.

Sembiring also demanded that RIM create a data centre in Indonesia, thus opening access for law enforcement officers to track down law breakers using BlackBerry smartphones.
