Ruling orders company to pay CasaPound €800 for each day the account has been closed
A civil court in Rome has ruled that Facebook must immediately reactivate the account of the Italian neo-fascist party CasaPound, and pay the group €800 (£675) for each day the account has been closed, according to local media.
Facebook shut the party’s account, which had 240,000 followers, along with its Instagram page in early September. A spokesperson for the website told the Ansa news agency at the time: “Persons or organisations that spread hatred or attack others on the basis of who they are will not have a place on Facebook and Instagram. The accounts we removed today violate this policy and will no longer be present on Facebook or Instagram.”
