Facebook has deleted a page created to expose child sex abuse allegations.
The page was created by a group called “Citizens Against Child Abuse”, which has accused Facebook of failing to respond to claims made by the Australian Government.
The group claimed to have obtained documents showing that Facebook knew about a child sex exploitation network in Australia, but did nothing about it.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg told a group of Australian media outlets that the allegations were false.
He said the page had been removed “for good reason”.
Facebook has not commented on the matter.
The Australian Government said it was unaware of the existence of the Facebook page, but that it was “committed to taking action to protect children from child sexual exploitation”.
Facebook also did not respond to a request for comment from ABC News.
‘Not appropriate’ The group claims Facebook has “failed to do anything about this”, but Facebook has denied the allegations.
It said in a statement to ABC News: “We have removed content related to the child abuse and trafficking community that was created on our platform over the past few years, and have removed a small number of posts, including a personalised account with a very narrow audience of people.”
Facebook also said it had removed a number of other content related a number that had been flagged as inappropriate.
