MPs Facebook accounts to be verified

State Minister for Post and Telecommunications Tarana Halim on Monday said that Facebook accounts of all the parliamentary members of Bangladesh will be verified.

After verification, the social media giant will delete the Facebook accounts registered with names of the MPs, the state minister added.

“In this regard, I had a meeting with the high-ups of Facebook — Vikram Langeh, manager of trust and safety, and Ankhil Das, public policy director of India, South and Central Asia — in Singapore on March 30,” the state minister said at her secretariat office in Dhaka.

“Now, we will send a letter to the speaker of the House to collect the identity of each of its members for sending to the Facebook authorities for verification,” she added.

Tarana Halim said that the Home Ministry will setup a special desk to get information about any militancy related issue and social media related crimes. The desk will then forward those to the Facebook authorities for necessary action.

She also said Facebook responded to about 65 percent of the complaints submitted by Bangladesh government in 2017.
