Thai Govt. urges Facebook, Line to censor online posts

New Delhi: Thailand’s military-dominant government has urged social networking giants like Facebook and Line to comply with court orders and censor online posts.

The military junta-appointed NRSA Advisory Council plans to meet executives from the two companies in the next three months, reports Reuters.

The government has been granted court orders for the removal of content that damages the country and the monarchy and affects peace and order.

Since May 2014, Thailand has been ruled by a military junta, the National Council for Peace and Order, which has partially repealed the 2007 constitution, banned political gatherings, arrested and detained politicians and anti-coup activists, imposed internet censorship and taken control of the media.(ANI)
