Facebook told to provide details of two accounts

LAHORE: A judicial magistrate at the District Courts on Thursday directed the management of famous social networking website Facebook in California to provide registration details of two accounts involved in launching a defamation campaign against former woman MPA Seemal Raja.

Earlier, the FIA cyber crime circle investigating officer told the court that investigation had been completed on a complaint moved by Ms Raja.

He said handlers of two Facebook accounts titled “Hamid Khan MSF” and “Ashiq Hussain” uploaded on the website objectionable material and remarks regarding the complainant and her family.

The IO asked the court to order the Facebook management in California, US, to furnish registration data of the accounts so that the suspects could be traced and arrested.

Magistrate Umar Farooq Warraich accepted the request and issued an order to the Facebook’s security department to provide the FIA with required details of the profiles.
