Facebook Move on Myanmar Raises Thorny Political Questions

Director of Internet Ethics, Irina Raicu, quoted in an article in France24 on Facebook's ban of Myanmar's military leaders.

"That [ban of Myanmar's military leaders] seems to be a much more proactive stance than Facebook has taken before -- and it raises the question about what criteria are applied in determining which individuals and groups are prevented from using the platform in the first place, rather than in response to terms of service or community guidelines violations," Raicu said.
