See this Help Article on Facebook as to how your friend can contest this. You won't be able to do anything, it has to be the account owner that contacts Facebook.

Specifically they should read this section:

My Personal Facebook Account is disabled

There are different reasons why you may not be able to access your account and unique ways to contact Facebook for each case. Therefore, it is important to be sure that you are using the correct channel when submitting a request for help. First, identify the correct reason why you are unable to access your account from the three reasons that are listed below. Then, follow the instructions listed by the reason that pertains to you.

  1. Disabled for violating Facebook's Statement of Rights and Responsibilities Facebook accounts that have been reported or detected for policy violations may be disabled by Facebook. Possible reasons include, but are not restricted to:

    • Continued prohibited behavior after receiving a warning or multiple warnings from Facebook
    • Unsolicited contact with others for the purpose of harassment, advertising, promoting, dating, or other inappropriate conduct
    • Use of a fake name
    • Impersonation of a person or entity, or other misrepresentation of identity
    • Posted content that violates Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities (this includes any obscene, pornographic, or sexually explicit photos, as well as any photos that depict graphic violence. We also remove content, photo or written, that threatens, intimidates, harasses, or brings unwanted attention or embarrassment to an individual or group of people)


    Please review Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities to learn more about specific types of conduct and content that are not permitted on the site.
