RPT UPDATE 3 Rohingya Refugees Sue Facebook for $150 Billion Over Violence in Myanmar

Dec 6 (Reuters) – Rohingya refugees from Myanmar are suing Meta Platforms Inc, formerly known as Facebook, for $150 billion over allegations that the social media company has failed to act against anti-Rohingya hate speech that has contributed to violence.

A US class-action lawsuit filed Monday in California by law firms Edelson PC and Fields PLLC argues that the company’s failure to control content and the platform’s design contributed to the real-life violence facing the Rohingya. . .com/investigates/special-report/myanmar-facebook-hate community.

In a concerted action, British lawyers have also sent a letter of formal notice to Facebook’s London office.

A Meta spokesperson said in a statement: “We are shocked by the crimes committed against the Rohingya people in Myanmar. We have built a dedicated team of Burmese speakers, banned the Tatmadaw (Myanmar’s military), disrupted networks that manipulate public debate and take action against harmful misinformation to protect people. We have also invested in Burmese language technology to reduce the prevalence of infringing content.”

The company previously said it was “too slow to prevent misinformation and hatred” in Myanmar.

A spokesman for the Myanmar junta did not return calls from Reuters to comment on the legal action against Facebook.

In 2018, UN human rights researchers said the use of Facebook had played a key role in spreading hate speech that fueled the violence.

A Reuters investigation that year, cited in the US complaint, found more than 1,000 examples of posts, comments, and images depicting the Rohingya and other attacking Muslims on Facebook. Almost all were in the main local language, Burmese.

The swear words included posts calling the Rohingya or other Muslims dogs, maggots and rapists, suggesting that they be fed to pigs, and urging them to be shot or exterminated.

The posts were tolerated despite Facebook rules specifically prohibiting attacking ethnic groups with “violent or dehumanizing language” or comparing them to animals.

Facebook has said it is protected from liability for content posted by users by a US internet law known as Section 230, which states that online platforms are not liable for content posted by third parties. The complaint says it wants to apply Myanmar law to the claims if Section 230 is raised as a defense.

While US courts can apply foreign law to cases where the alleged harm and activities by companies occurred in other countries, two legal experts interviewed by Reuters said they were not aware of a successful precedent for foreign law invoked in lawsuits against social media companies where Section 230 protections may apply.

Anupam Chander, a professor at Georgetown University Law Center, said relying on Myanmar law was not “inappropriate”. But he predicted that “it is unlikely to be successful,” saying that “it would be strange if Congress ruled out actions under US law but allowed them to proceed under foreign law.”

More than 730,000 Rohingya Muslims fled Rakhine state in Myanmar in August 2017 after a military crackdown that refugees say involved massacres and rapes. Rights groups documented murders of civilians and the burning of villages.

Myanmar authorities say they fought an insurgency and deny committing systematic atrocities.

The International Criminal Court has opened a case over allegations of crimes in the region. In September, a US federal judge ordered Facebook to release data from accounts linked to anti-Rohingya violence in Myanmar that the social media giant had shut down.

The new class-action lawsuit references claims by Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen, who leaked a cache 2021-12-03 from internal documents this year that the company does not monitor abusive content in countries where such expressions are likely to do the most damage.

The complaint also cites recent media reports, including a Reuters report last month, that Myanmar military used fake social media accounts to engage in what is commonly referred to in the military as “information battle.”

Mohammed Taher, a refugee living in the camps in Bangladesh where more than a million Rohingya live, said Facebook was widely used to spread anti-Rohingya propaganda.

“We are happy with the move,” he said on the phone.
