BFM Podcast: APPLE VERSUS THE FBI

I was interviewed by BFM Radio to talk about US Government’s request to compel Apple Inc to assist in the access of a suspected terrorist’s iPhone on 24 February 2016.


On February 16, Apple published a message on its website, outlining to its customers that they would not be complying with a request from the U.S. government. The request was for Apple to unlock the iPhone encryption of Syed Rizwan Farook, one of two perpetrators of a mass shooting in San Bernardino last year. Explaining what’s at stake in the current debate between Apple and the U.S. Government is Foong Cheng Leong, chairman of the KL Bar Information Technology Committee, and a member of the Bar Council Intellectual Property Committee.
