Zuckerberg to appear before EU Parliament, but snubs the United Kingdom - again

Zuckerberg speaks at Facebook Inc's annual F8 developers conference in San Jose

"Our citizens deserve a full and detailed explanation", he added.

The ex-boss of Cambridge Analytica, a political consultancy that closed down after being involved in a scandal about the improper use of the data of millions of Facebook users, will appear in front of British lawmakers on June 6.

However Zuckerburg will be questioned by the chair of the United Kingdom parliament's justice and home affairs committee, Claude Moraes, as he is a British Labour MEP.

Mark Zuckerberg will meet with European Union politicians to discuss Cambridge Analytica and data protection.

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

"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.

Zuckerberg's trip across the pond to visit Europe comes ahead of the implementation of the EU's data protection regulation. "It is a step in the right direction towards restoring confidence", Tajani said.

Facebook has confirmed that Zuckerberg will attend a meeting with European parliamentary members in Brussels.

Facebook "has been somewhat responsive during the controversy, but shareholders should continue to closely monitor data privacy issues", ISS says.

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

Parliament's media committee said Thursday that Alexander Nix had accepted a summons to appear June 6.

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.

The 40-page letter, in response to the committee's formal request for Facebook to respond to 39 points it felt Facebook CTO Mike Schroepfer answer answered unsatisfactorily last month when he appeared before MPs, arrived three days after an initial 11 May deadline - with Facebook requesting, and being granted, an extension.
