Myanmar’s Rohingya sue Facebook for enabling ‘genocide’

TRT World says Social media giant faces compensation claims worth nearly $200 billion in a coordinated suit in US and UK, The Guardian reports.

Rohingya Muslims have sued Facebook in US and UK, alleging the social media giant ignored hate speech and inflammatory posts against the ethnic group in Myanmar leading to the “genocide” of its members there. 

Facebook was “willing to trade the lives of the Rohingya people for better market penetration in a small country in south-east Asia,” British newspaper The Guardian cited a complaint lodged with a court in San Francisco on Monday. 

“In the end, there was so little for Facebook to gain from its continued presence in Burma, and the consequences for the Rohingya people could not have been more dire. Yet, in the face of this knowledge, and possessing the tools to stop it, it simply kept marching forward,” the class action complaint said.
