Cambridge Analytica shared data with Russia: whistleblower

Bannon Tried To Use Cambridge Analytica Ads To Suppress Black Vote

A spokesperson for Facebook told the Guardian newspaper that the company had accepted the "proposal to meet with leaders of the European parliament and appreciate [s] the opportunity for dialogue, to listen to their views and show the steps we are taking to better protect people's privacy".

But the decision to hold the meeting with the European Parliament behind closed doors has angered others.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will cross the Atlantic and come to Europe to answer questions over the Cambridge Analytica data sharing scandal. Shares in the company even rose after his appearance.

Zuckerberg's Brussels visit comes just days ahead when European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into play on May 25.

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

Justice Commissioner Věra Jourová was admonished by Tajani when she said it was a pity the hearing would not be public.

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

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

Tajani said: "Our citizens deserve a full and detailed explanation".

On Monday, Zuckerberg will also attend a meeting organized by French President Emmanuel Macron aimed at pressuring tech giants to use their global influence for public good.

Zuckerberg has so far declined to appear, to the British lawmakers' annoyance.

As previously reported "FACTS", on Wednesday, the speaker of the EP, Antonio Tania reported that Zuckerberg accepted the invitation to come in the EP. Meeting due to the fact that, according to the newspaper The New York Times, collaborated with the President of the United States Donald trump during the election campaign, the firm Cambridge Analytica illegally obtained data, more than 87 million users of Facebook.

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.

The committee said that Dominic Cummings, former campaign director Vote Leave, had refused to appear in front of lawmakers to discuss the campaign and its use of data.
