A judge in the United States has ordered Facebook to release records of now-closed accounts connected to anti-Rohingya violence in Myanmar, according to the Wall Street Journal. The judge in Washington, DC, criticised Facebook for failing to hand over information to investigators seeking to prosecute the country for international crimes against the Muslim minority Rohingya, the newspaper said. Facebook had refused to release the data, saying it would violate a US law that bars electronic communication services from disclosing users’ communications. But the judge said the posts, which were deleted, would not be covered under the law, according to the Wall Street Journal.
