LONDON: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has rejected a request to appear before a global parliamentary committee delving into the questions round faux information. The rebuff got here after Damian Collins, the pinnacle of the UK parliament’s media committee, joined forces along with his Canadian counterpart in hopes of pressuring Zuckerberg to testify, as he did before the US Congress.

Facebook rejected the invitation to appear before the so-called “international grand committee” session November 27, arguing it wasn’t potential for Zuckerberg to appear before all parliaments.

Collins says strain is constructing, with counterparts in Australia, Argentina and Ireland having joined the grand committee within the time since Zuckerberg was invited.

He says “five parliaments are now calling on you to do the right thing by the 170 million users in the countries they represent.”
