The Oversight Board is a committee composed of experts from all over the world , external to Menlo Park, with the power to impose binding decisions regarding the blocking of content on Facebook.

After the first "light" cases taken in charge and still awaiting a verdict, Facebook has referred to the judgment of the forum a far more thorny decision, namely to choose whether to make the expulsion of Donald Trump from his social networks permanent.

Following the uprising on the Capitol, Facebook, like Twitter, has opted for indefinitely suspend the accounts of the former president. In doing so, he specified that Trump would no longer be able to access his accounts while he was still in office, without unbuttoning the length of the block.

Nick Clegg, Facebook's vice president of global affairs, wrote in a blogpost that the social network believes it is important for the board to investigate the case and come to an independent judgment.

While the Oversight Board discusses the case, Donald Trump's accounts will remain suspended. The supervisory body will also be responsible for providing recommendations and comments on how to deal with the blocking of a political leader's account in the future.
