Court orders Facebook to release records of anti-Rohingya content for Genocide Case

  • A federal judge in the United States has ordered Facebook to provide information of accounts linked to anti-Rohingya violence in Myanmar that the company had shut down, dismissing the company's privacy argument as "loaded with irony."

  • According to a copy of the decision, a judge in Washington, D.C., chastised Facebook for failing to hand over evidence to authorities trying to prosecute the government for international crimes against the Muslim minority Rohingya.

  • After a military campaign that included mass murders and rape, more than 730,000 Rohingya Muslims fled Myanmar's Rakhine State in August 2017. Civilians have been killed and villages have been burned, according to human rights organizations.
