Cambridge Analytica shared data with Russia: whistleblower

Facebook's founder Mark Zuckerberg has agreed to a private meeting behind the closed doors with a handful of European parliament's, carefully chosen members.

Damian Collins, the head of the United Kingdom parliament's media committee, has said he hopes Zuckerberg would take advantage of his trip to Europe next week to visit London and testify there as well. "I welcome Mark Zuckerberg's decision to appear in person before the representatives of 500 million Europeans", Mr Tajani said.

Facebook (FB +0.3%) CEO Mark Zuckerberg heads overseas to meet with the European Parliament on Tuesday evening, where he'll discuss the use of personal data of the company's European Union users.

Zuckerberg instead chose to dispatch his chief technical officer, Mike Schroepfer, to appear before the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee last month. "The Committee will use the opportunity to address numerous inconsistencies in his previous evidence", Damian Collins, the committee's chairman, said in a statement. "It must be a public hearing - why not a Facebook Live", he asked in a Tweet.

A similar United Kingdom committee has repeatedly requested that the Facebook CEO appear to discuss the issues, but on three separate occasions Zuckerburg declined, instead offering one of his executives. "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 Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee said that Alexander Nix had accepted its summons. "We would like the session here to take place by 24 May".

The EU and British parliaments have been calling for Zuckerberg to submit to an on-air grilling since it emerged earlier this year that a company, political consultants Cambridge Analytica, had been allowed to misuse the data of millions of Facebook users.
