A civil court in Rome has ruled that Facebook must immediately reactivate the account of the Italian neo-fascist party CasaPound and pay the group €800 (Rs 63,000 approx) for each day the account has been closed. Facebook shut the party’s account, which had 2,40,000 followers, along with its Instagram page in early September. 

The company must also pay €15,000 (Rs 11,85,000 approx) in legal costs, according to details of the ruling that the party shared with the Italian press. The judge reportedly ruled that without Facebook, the party was “excluded (or extremely limited) from the Italian political debate”.
