The transnational Facebook has not responded to the communications and requests made by the national Executive, after the closure of the account, the censorship of the President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro, on its platform.
Maduro explained that in addition to the writings they have addressed the office of the company located in Mexico, but "they do not open the door and have not responded in more than 15 days, to the letters we have sent," he said.
That is "the democracy in which Facebook and the multinationals of the world believe that they want to impose on the new hegemony," added the national leader, during a videoconference of the Bicentennial Congress of the Peoples.
Maduro indicated that the censorship was for disclosing valuable information for the health of the people and medicinal advances to counteract the Covid-19 pandemic.
On March 28, Facebook applied a censorship to the official page of the Venezuelan head of state on the digital platform; the blockade, for a period of one month, prevents the president from publishing information and content.
The company asserted that the user had violated its information policy on the covid-19 pandemic
The president's page on the digital social network has more than 1,2 million followers and followers.
In this regard, the Ministry of Popular Power for Communication and Information issued a statement to reject the restriction imposed, noting that this new arbitrariness goes against articles 57 and 58 of the Constitution of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
