“Last week I filed a Prosecution against Mr. Mark Zuckerberg at Luleå District Court in the North of Sweden. The reason for this court is that it is in this jurisdiction Facebook/Instagram has its Global Main Server Facility serving more than one billion Facebook users.
Since then I have received thousands of comments and cheerings saying that this was finally done by someone. At the same time many has also send, and post questions, both why Zuckerberg personally, and if you can Prosecute such a man all together.
My answer is this: Mark Zuckerberg is the CEO of the company Meta Platforms Inc that is the parent of Facebook and Instagram. A CEO is legally responsible for the daily operation of the company he/she is set to operate as Chief Operator. Of course a person in such a position in such a large company can not supervise in detail what is going on on all parts of the organization – but he/she is legally responsible for implementing arrangements to see to that the company follows the laws in all countries they operate. He/she is also responsible for have a system in place that evaluate constantly if the company could be involved in any illegal activity and he/she is responsible against the shareholders and also the stock exchange for following the NASDAQ so called Corporate Governance.
The US President Harry S Truman had a sign on his desk in the oval offices saying; “The buck ends here” – meaning, he was responsible for all that happened in the US Administration down to the smallest detail. He couldn’t do everything, but he was responsible for making sure all was correct, and had to take the consequences for it.
Can you Prosecute such a person as Mr. Zuckerberg? Of course you can. He is just a guy like the rest of us. He doesn’t stand above the law. One might even argue that he has a greater responsibility for following the law in that position and being a public figure.
Mr. Zuckerberg has to come to Sweden and defend himself – and if he doesn’t I think people will see him as a man that doesn’t stand up for himself and try to avoid responsibility for his actions.”
