MNA Science & Technology Desk: Tarana Halim, State Minister for Posts and Telecommunications, said Facebook authorities will delete the fake accounts registered using the names of members of parliament (MPs) and VVIP personalities of Bangladesh.

“Once we provide the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) of those fake accounts of MPs and VVIPs to Facebook authorities, they’ll shut down those,” Tarana said to journalists.

She made the remarks at a press briefing in Secretariat on Monday after returning from a meeting with Facebook authorities in Singapore.

“We will now send a letter to the parliament speaker for identifying the URL of the verified page of all members.” She added.

She also said Facebook responded to about 65% of the complaints submitted by Bangladesh government in 2017.
