In connection with the storming of the Capitol in early January, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg decided to suspend then-US President Donald Trump "indefinitely".

Then the Supervisory Board - an independent external council appointed by Zuckerberg - was given the task of deciding whether the ban would be permanent, or whether Trump would be allowed to return to the social media heat.

And now the Council has made its decision.

"The Council upholds Facebook's decision to restrict then-President Donald Trump's ability to publish content on his Facebook and Instagram page," they write.
