Burma Campaign UK on Wednesday called on Facebook to ban nearly 30 pages belonging to the Myanmar military and military-backed companies, reports the Irrawaddy.

Although Facebook had previously removed military pages, fake accounts and military mouthpiece pages, the statement said, more than 25 military and military-backed companies’ pages are still hosted on the platform.

“Whether the Facebook pages are spreading military propaganda or promoting military-owned businesses, either way they are promoting part of an institution accused of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity,” Burma Campaign UK director Mark Farmaner said in the statement.
