British Parliament deactivated its TikTok account after several MPs were sanctioned by the Chinese government, Politico reports. Among those sanctioned were MPs Tom Tugendhat, Iain Duncan Smith and Nus Ghani, who wrote a letter to the speakers of the Commons and Lords that called for the account to be taken down. In their letter, the MPs underscored the requirement for companies to turn over data to the government when requested under China’s National Intelligence law. TikTok officials denied turning data over to the Chinese government, despite its ownership by ByteDance.
