Zuckerberg to meet European Parliament members


Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will appear before
some members of the European Parliament to face questions about his company’s use of
personal data. A spokesperson confirmed Zuckerberg accepted
Parliament’s invitation. It’s not clear when the tech mogul will make
the trip to Europe, but the European Parliament’s president said in a statement it will be “as
soon as possible.” He also called it a “step in the right direction
towards restoring confidence.” Zuckerberg’s reportedly still refusing to
appear before the U.K. Parliament, though. Earlier this month, the government there gave
Zuckerberg an ultimatum: He could either voluntarily testify before Parliament, or the government
would issue an official summons the next time he’s in the country. CNN reports Facebook UK’s head of policy told
the U.K. committee Monday that Zuckerberg “has no plans to meet with the committee or
travel to the UK” at the moment.
