Alleged FB ban bad news: Fr Victor

In a press briefing today, Father Victor said it is sad that people defame leaders and others through social media.

However, he believes the Minister for Communication should take action through legal means rather than attempt to ban Facebook or social media.

He says this is a time Papua New Guinea wants to showcase itself to other member countries of APEC, to show that we are up-to-date with development and human rights.

Minister Sam Basil’s plan to shut down Facebook follows rising concerns about social well-being, security and productivity.
