We restricted access to items alleged to violate French election laws during the 2017 Presidential and Legislative elections and in response to court orders. We also restricted access in France to 385 items related to Holocaust denial, and to six pieces of content in response to reports from La Licra and Pharos, trusted reporters under the European Commission Code of Conduct on Countering Illegal Hate Speech Online. Following the end of the election blackout period, we restored access to 323 restricted items.
