YouTube said on Thursday that it has suspended payments to content producers on 14 that have been accused the country’s Federal Election Court TSE of spreading fake news about next year’s elections.

Most regularly fully support President Jair Bolsonaro (Jair Bolsonaro), a far-right former army captain who has been questioning the credibility of next year’s vote. After overseeing the outbreak of the world’s second most deadly and a weak economy, the president’s position in the polls declined.

Alphabet’s YouTube said in a statement announcing this initiative: “We have strengthened our commitment to working with authorities and continue to invest in policies, resources and products to protect the YouTube community from harmful content.”

Last week, the electoral inspector general, Luis Felipe Salomão, ordered YouTube, Twitch.TV, Twitter, Instagram and to suspend payments to people and pages that spread false information about Brazil’s election system.

In July, YouTube stated that it had removed videos spreading misinformation about the outbreak from Bolsonaro’s channel, becoming the latest tech giant to withdraw its pandemic statement.

Last year, after Bolsonaro issued a statement that violated the recommendations of global public health experts, Twitter and both deleted Bolsonaro videos that violated its terms of use.
