An international human rights body has urged Facebook to revise its restrictive policies against user content following the permanent removal of the English-language Press TV news network’s page without prior warning. In a statement issued on Saturday, Skyline International for Human Rights said, "Facebook suspended all the accounts of the ‘Press TV’ page's supervisors on March 26, then blocked the official page with over four million followers.” The foundation, which aims to defend the rights to freedom of opinion and of expression on all social media, censured the decision, which is in violation of the recent corporate human rights policy and fund to support rights defenders.
