Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg has agreed to testify personally to European Parliament on data scandal surrounding Cambridge Analytica. This was shared by President of European Parliament, Antonio Tajani. Zuckerberg may be coming to Brussels next week. "Our citizens deserve a full and detailed explanation," said President of Parliament. Zuckerberg should, among or things, meet with chair of EU parliamentary groups.
For weeks, European Parliament had tried to persuade Zuckerberg to make a statement. However, Zuckerberg had only offered to send his vice to public relations, Joel Kaplan. Tajani held that Parliament represented more than 500 million citizens and was an important decision-maker in legislation in world's strongest economic area.
According to Facebook, Facebook and Cambridge Analytica scandal could affect data of up to 87 million users worldwide. Among m are also 2.7 million EU citizens.
The head of Group of European People's Party, Manfred Weber (CSU), welcomed Zuckerberg's pledge and recalled that many European politicians would have called for it to be closed. "We're going to talk in plain language because Facebook has more consumers in Europe than in United States of America," Weber said. It would be clear that rules of EU's new data protection guidelines would also be "applied by Facebook to 100 percent", he added. "We need clear answers from Zuckerberg on that."
