(Reuters) – Meta Platforms Inc on Monday asked a Russian court to dismiss proceedings in a case brought by prosecutors who demanded that the US tech giant be labeled an “extremist organization,” Russian news agencies reported.

The TASS news agency reported from the courtroom that Meta had asked for more time to prepare her position and also questioned the court’s authority to impose a ban on her activities.

Meta representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
