Facebook blockage lifted with immediate effect


President Maithripala Sirisena instructed the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission of Sri Lanka (TRCSL) to lift the blockage imposed on Facebook with immediate effect, a short while ago.

The President arrived at the decision after holding talks with Facebook officials.

The government took measures to block social media on March 7 to quell and control the spread of racially inciting rumors and hate speech, after the eruption of communal conflicts in Kandy and Ampara.
