Zuckerberg to appear before European Union after snubbing United Kingdom commitee

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.

But the Parliament President Antonio Tajani shoots her down on Twitter, saying "It's not your job to control and criticise the European Parliament". "It's a step in the right direction towards restoring confidence".

Zuckerberg to appear before European Union after snubbing United Kingdom commitee

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.

Di Maio told reporters in parliament "the recipe to lower public debt is by investments and expansionary policies". A new statement confirmed the new potential coalition had decided "not to call into question the single currency".

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.

ABC states that the slain police officer was killed when one of the terrorists ran him down while trying to escape in the vehicle. However, he declined to comment further about the raid, saying the police were still investigating the case.

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.
