Zuckerberg to appear before European Union after snubbing United Kingdom commitee

But the Parliament President Antonio Tajani shoots her down on Twitter, saying "It's not your job to control and criticise the European Parliament".

Collins said that Cummings would be reported for failing to appear, which "could result in a decision that a contempt of parliament has been committed, a very serious outcome for the individual".

Facebook, in an emailed statement, said it accepted the "proposal to meet with leaders of the European Parliament and appreciate the opportunity for dialogue, to listen to their views and show the steps we are taking to better protect people's privacy".

Zuckerberg instead made a decision to dispatch his chief technical officer, Mike Schroepfer, to appear before the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee last month.

The DCMS committee is investigating whether third party use of Facebook users' profile data contributed to the vote to leave the European Union, as well as the use of fake accounts to spread fake news on the platform.

Zuckerberg's already gone before the US Congress.

Committee chair Damian Collins MP said it was "disappointing" that Facebook had not answered questions with a "sufficient level of detail and transparency".

After appearing before the US Senate in April this year, the Facebook founder is all set to appear before the European parliament in a closed-door meeting to answer questions about the improper use of the personal data of millions of users by a political consultancy firm.

Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg will attend a behind-closed-doors session at the European parliament, possibly as early as next week. It must be a public hearing, he says, "Why not a Facebook Live?"

"We hope that he will respond positively to our request, but if not the Committee will resolve to issue a formal summons for him to appear when he is next in the United Kingdom".

Mark Zuckerberg has been called out for agreeing to give evidence to the European Parliament despite repeated calls to front British MPs.

Cambridge Analytica said it pitched to Leave.EU, a Brexit campaign group, but did not do any work for them after it missed out on the official campaign designation to Vote Leave, which is separately being investigated for possibly breaches of campaign finance rules.
