Google announced in a statement Friday that it has suspended an e-mail alert system for Google trend in New Zealand due to criticism from the government after the details of the murder case were spread.

Google, which has many companies and applications such as Facebook and Twitter, is looking at the issue of published content, which has caused them a lot of damage due to lack of censorship and non-regulation.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern expressed her disappointment that Google had failed to comply with a court order to cancel the name of a man accused of murdering 22-year-old British traveler Grace Milan.

The court issued a ruling banning the name of a man accused of murder, but appeared in Google  e-mail alert messages, which contains the most traded items in New Zealand.

“We understand the sensitivity to this issue and have suspended Google Trend,” a spokeswoman for Google said in an e-mail message.

Google sent a letter to Andrew James Little, New Zealand’s justice minister, stating that it respects the country’s law and rules, after Little urged the company not to be “bad” and do the right thing.

“This provides more assurance against any repetition of such an act,” the director of government affairs and public policy at Google wrote to Little after suspending the induction.
