X reverses course and tells the Brazilian court that it will comply with the decisions

Lawyers representing Elon Musk’s X told Brazil’s Supreme Court that the social media platform will comply with all decisions issued by the court or Brazil’s main electoral tribunal, according to a letter seen by Reuters on Monday.

The document addressed to Federal Supreme Court Minister Alexandre de Moraes comes after Musk said last week that he would contest Moraes’ decision ordering X, formerly known as Twitter, to block certain accounts in the South American country.

The measure marks a change in stance by the Brazilian unit of X, which last week stated in a separate document sent to Moraes that it was unable to control the US-based company’s willingness to comply with Brazilian court orders.

“As already communicated to the Federal Police, X Brasil informs that all determinations of this Federal Supreme Court and the Superior Electoral Court will continue to be fully complied with by X Corp”, the lawyers told Moraes in the letter seen this Monday.

In response, Moraes opened an investigation against the billionaire for what he called obstruction of justice.

Moraes investigates “digital militias” accused of spreading fake news and hateful messages during the government of former far-right president Jair Bolsonaro. He is also leading an investigation into an alleged coup attempt by Bolsonaro.

X said on Monday that he had been subpoenaed by the Judiciary Committee of the US House of Representatives to provide information on orders from the Brazilian Supreme Court regarding content moderation.

Lawyers for the social media platform told Moraes that X complied with the committee’s request to share confidential court documents and would keep the court informed of any updates it might receive from X Corp on the matter.
