To appeal to a ban, a Facebook user will be able to do so through the Ministry of Digital Affairs website. The idea came after many users felt that they had been unjustly banned and had no way in which they could appeal to Facebook’s administration.
Poland is the first country to allow a formal appeal over Facebook’s decisions
Bans on conservative content
Andruszkiewicz commented on whether this move by the Ministry is due to reports that Facebook is more likely to ban conservative content. “We have had many signals from those environments, but also from individuals, that such a situation has appeared. I believe this is not a purely political issue and would like to approach it in that manner,” he said.
Andruszkiewicz underlined how unique the situation is, because “Poland is the first country to allow a formal appeal over Facebook’s decisions, therefore, this is a huge success for the Ministry of Digital Affairs.”
