On Tuesday March 18 2008, the Internet Service Provider Koumbit Network of Montreal, Canada was visited by two inspectors of the arson investigation department accompanied by two police officers and a search warrant. This follows the publication of articles on Indymedia Quebec, a news website hosted on Koumbit’s servers.
The search warrant authorised the police to seize all computers present in Koumbit’s office, even though the servers in question are not physically there. The warrant also required Koumbit to provide the inspectors with access logs and as much information as possible regarding four articles published on Indymedia Quebec. “Full press release on Koumbit website”:http://koumbit.org/en/node/10796
