sagt eigentlich alles, nämlich genau das, was ich seit Monaten predige.....Danke fürs finden :D
Back in June, it was widely reported and confirmed in several newspapers that the South African Police Services (SAPS) had called Apple in to help crack the four digit PIN on Oscar Pistorius’ iPhone. Lest we forget, Pistorius is up on murder charges for the killing of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Reports that his encrypted iPhone was a crucial piece of evidence which the police couldn’t get in to were circulating from mid-May. On 23rd June, the UK’s Mail on Sunday reported lead investigator Lieutenant General Vineshkumar Moonoo as saying:.....
Pistorius is saying he can’t remember the code and we have been unable to access messages sent or received that night.
These could be crucial and Apple executives in America have made their technicians available to help us.
The story was picked up by local papers and repeated internationally. We ran it here. Christo spoke on TV about what it might be that Apple could do to help. As far as we can tell, though, no news outlet explicitly said Apple was working with SAPS prior to this.
So with this discrepancy in mind, there are three possible conclusions to draw. Either:
Apple’s transparency report isn’t as transparent it claims – and maybe none of the companies that produce these reports are overly concerned about accuracy. Apple stands by its claim that this ain’t so.
SAPS did say Apple was involved but the whole thing was a quickly forgotten mistake caught by an eagle-eared journalist. Could happen – no-one would hold it against them.
The original story was a blatant fabrication. South African readers should note, this would not be the first time that papers from the Daily Mail stable have been caught doing this. Even in murder cases. We’ve asked the Mail whether or not it stands by the original story and are awaiting a response. If true, it’s a pretty serious thing – putting words into the mouth of the senior investigator on the world’s most famous murder case at the time would be an appalling thing to do.
