Facebook warned to 'remove material jeopardizing legal trials'
Sydney, Oct 8 (ANI): A top Australian lawmaker has warned social networking giant Facebook that it could face legal action if it failed to remove material that could jeopardise legal trials in the country.
Victoria's Attorney General Robert Clark said Facebook must take down material that influenced a person's right to a fair trial.
"We want to take Facebook and others at face value and try to get some clear guidelines that are workable for them but protect the community and don't prejudice fair trials," he told radio station 3AW.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Clark said there needed to be procedures to ensure prejudicial material was immediately taken down from social media sites.
He also called for measures to ensure that social media users understood their responsibilities.
"Jurors needed to be properly warned about ignoring prejudicial material that might come to their attention," the report quoted Clark, as saying. (ANI)
