Facebook yet to receive HC order to take down Al Jazeera documentary

Facebook today said they have not received the Bangladesh High Court’s order to take down a documentary titled “All the Prime Minister’s Men” which was broadcast by Al Jazeera on February 1.

Benchmark PR, the public relations partner of Facebook in Bangladesh, informed this to The Daily Star.

“We have not received the High Court’s written order from the BTRC to take down the Al Jazeera documentary ‘All the Prime Minister’s Men’,” said Sarah Sharmin, communications officer at Benchmark PR.

“We have not issued any statement about our actions,” she added.

Earlier on February 17, the High Court directed the telecom regulator to immediately remove the Al Jazeera documentary from online platforms in order to prevent “further worsening of the situation”.
