Facebook Oversight Board Upholds Ban On Trump’s Accounts

Published

on

SAN FRANCISCO, May 6 – Facebook Oversight Board (FOB) said on Wednesday that it has voted against reinstating the former United States President Donald Trump’s Facebook account, Xinhua news agency reported.

“The  Board has upheld Facebook’s decision on Jan  7, 2021, to restrict then-President Donald Trump’s access to posting content on his Facebook page and Instagram account,” the FOB said in an announcement.

“Given the seriousness of the violations and the ongoing risk of violence, Facebook was justified in suspending Trump’s accounts on Jan  6 and extending that suspension on Jan 7,” the board noted, adding that it was not appropriate for Facebook to impose an “indefinite” suspension.

The FOB required Facebook to revisit the case and then either restore Trump’s account, make the ban permanent or dene a suspension for a set period of time.

The FOB is a panel of about 20 former political leaders, human rights activists and journalists picked by Facebook to deliberate the company’s content decisions, according to media reports.
