Mark Zuckerberg agrees to meeting with EU officials in Brussels

The news has been confirmed by the President of the European Parliament, Antonio Tajani, who in a statement shared on Twitter said that Zuckerberg could appear before the European Parliament as soon as next week.

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 CEO Mark Zuckerberg will meet with leaders of the European parliament in a closed-door meeting next Tuesday about the data protection scandal that has engulfed his company.

Facebook faces a barrage of public criticism over how the data of tens of millions of its users was abused, and concerns over whether it has moved rapidly enough to remove questionable content.

"The founder and CEO of Facebook has accepted our invitation and will be in Brussels as soon as possible, hopefully already next week", he added.

European Union justice commissioner Vera Jourova, who is in charge of the bloc's new privacy rules, welcomed Zuckerberg's decision to travel to Brussels in person, but said she regretted the meeting will happen behind closed doors.

Congress MLA Amaragowda Linganagowda told the media that BJP has sought his support and that they also offered him ministership. The court also observed that the general trend of its past judgments was not to issue injunction or restrain the governor.

The committee tweeted that it remained open to Zuckerberg giving evidence via video link, or in person, adding: "Him not appearing before us is not just a snub to the DCMS committee, but more importantly a snub to the United Kingdom and the millions of Facebook users in the United Kingdom who deserve answers".

Justice Commissioner Věra Jourová was admonished by Tajani when she said it was a pity the hearing would not be public. "It's a step in the right direction towards restoring confidence".

Members of the public also won't be able to form their opinions about Zuckerberg's answers to the members of the parliament.

The EU and British parliaments have been calling for Zuckerberg to appear before them for weeks ever since it emerged that a company, political consultants Cambridge Analytica, had been allowed to misuse the data of millions of Facebook users.

"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".
