New Delhi: Facebook on Sunday (February 21, 2021) deleted the page of Myanmar Military as it violates its community standards prohibiting incitement to violence. This development comes after a day when two protestors were killed in a police firing during a demonstration against the Miltary coup on February 1, 2021.

Tatmadaw, which is the official name of the Myanmar military, runs a Facebook page by the name “True News.” The page is not available on Facebook anymore.

State Counsellor, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, President U Win Myint, and other political leaders were detained on February 1, one day before the commencement of the new Parliament session after the November elections. A one-year emergency has been announced by the President’s office.

Tensions have been simmering between the National League for Democracy (NLD) led by Suu Kyi and the military which alleges that the November elections saw a vote-rigging and thus the results were a fraud. The case had also gone to the Supreme Court where the military had threatened to take over, a power bestowed upon it by the 2008 Constitution.

Earlier, The United States announced a series of sanctions against multiple Myanmar’s military leaders and entities. The Department of the Treasury said in a statement that it designated 10 current and former military officials and blacklisted three entities related to military or security forces of Myanmar.
