Meta asks Russian court to dismiss proceedings in ‘extremism’ case

CNA – Meta Platforms yesterday asked a Russian court to dismiss proceedings in a case brought by state prosecutors demanding that the US tech giant be labelled an “extremist organisation”, Russian news agencies reported.

The TASS news agency reported from the courtroom that Meta asked for more time to prepare its position and had also questioned the court’s authority to implement a ban on its activities.

Representatives for Meta did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
