Meeting to tackle illicit web content

The telecom regulator wants more help from internet service providers in removing illegal content from Facebook and YouTube.

The task of getting Facebook and YouTube to remove illegal content will be discussed at a Tuesday meeting of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) and the Thai Internet Service Provider Association (Tispa).

The meeting is part of efforts to deal with illicit web pages and social media posts, particularly those related to the monarchy.

NBTC secretary-general Takorn Tantasith said the number of new illicit web pages posted on Facebook from May 1 to July 9 totalled 1,471, with 156 of them having already been removed.
