German lawyer makes hate-speech complaint against Facebook
by Harro ten Wolde
German prosecutors are again considering whether to press charges against Mark Zuckerberg and other Facebook executives for failing to staunch a tide of racist and threatening posts on the social network during an influx of migrants into Europe.
Munich prosecutors said they had received a complaint filed by a German technology law firm two weeks ago alleging that Facebook (FB.O) broke strict national laws against hate speech, sedition and support for terrorist organizations.
Attorney Chan-jo Jun, who filed a similar complaint in Hamburg a year ago, is demanding that Facebook executives be compelled to comply with anti-hate speech laws by removing racist or violent postings from their site. Jun is principal partner of the law firm Jun Lawyers of Wuerzburg in Bavaria.
