Ex-Head Of Cambridge Analytica To Appear Before UK Committee

"It is disappointing that a company with the resources of Facebook chooses not to provide a sufficient level of detail and transparency on various points including on Cambridge Analytica, dark ads, Facebook Connect, the amount spent by Russian Federation on United Kingdom ads on the platform, data collection across the web, budgets for investigations, and that shows general discrepancies between Schroepfer and Zuckerberg's respective testimonies", committee chair and Conservative MP Damian Collins said in a statement. "There should be no double standards for the U.S. Congress and the European Parliament", - stated the co-Chairman of the faction "Greens - Free Alliance of Europe", Philippe Lamberts.

The EU meeting however is set to be private with the leaders of the political groups and a justice and civil rights expert.

That suggests he will avoid an uncomfortable public appearance and instead meet only with the legislature's top brass behind closed doors.

The data which got exposed was highly sensitive and revealed the personal details of Facebook users like their results of psychological tests. It must be a public hearing, he says, "Why not a Facebook Live?"

Yet the question of whether Zuckerberg should explain himself publicly remains a point of contention.

BS Yeddyurappa heads to Raj Bhavan, to take oath as CM shortly
Of the 77 MLAs with criminal cases - 42 are from BJP, 23 from Congress, 11 from JD (S) and 1 from BSP. In 2018 election, Congress had emerged as the largest party but invited BJP to form the government .

"I will not attend the meeting with Mr Zuckerberg if it's held behind closed doors".

The parliament will separately organize a hearing with Facebook representatives to examine data protection that will also look at the potential impact on the election process.

Tajani said that simply showing up to explain himself was already a good move.

Mr Tajani had invited Mr Zuckerberg, saying that the 2.7 million European Union citizens affected by the data sharing scandal deserved a full explanation. Although the data firm was working on behalf of President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign, it was able to sweep up information on about 2.7 million European residents too, according to statements from the European Commission.

"Although Facebook says Mr Zuckerberg has no plans to travel to the United Kingdom, we would also be open to taking his evidence by video link, if that would be the only way to do this during the period of our inquiry", committee chairman, Damian Collins writes in a letter to Facebook. While Nix has testified once to the committee, lawmakers want him to give further evidence - a request he had previously declined. He had refused to appear before the committee last month, citing the ongoing investigation into the firm.
