Mobile operator's fine for refusal to provide data to bailiffs legal
MOSCOW, February 29 - RAPSI. The Supreme Commercial Court has validated the bailiffs' ruling to fine Volgograd-GSM $1,720 for not providing information on debtors' phone numbers, according to the court's website.
The mobile operator requested to invalidate the Federal Bailiff Service's resolution dated November 17, 2010. The bailiffs fined Volgograd-GSM 50,000 rubles ($1,720) as it refused to provide information on its registered subscribers, who were debtors.
The first-instance court decision reads that the laws "On Bailiffs" and "On Execution Proceedings" do not grant bailiffs the right to receive subscribers' personal data without their consent.
The Supreme Commercial Court's ruling reads that the bailiffs lawful requirements are obligatory for everyone and are subject to rigorous observance all over Russia.
