The European Parliament again urged Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO and founder of Facebook to testify on the data leak of more than 87 million users of the social network as Reuters reported.

‘Antoni Tajani, the President of the European Parliament last week repeated his request to Zuckerberg to appear before the assembly, saying that sending a junior executive would not suffice', the message said.

Tajani claimed in the letter to Zuckerberg that one of the European Parliament’s priorities is the strengthening of the regulatory framework to provide the high-level security of the digital market.

Also, Vera Jourova, the European Commissioner for Justice recommended Zuckerberg to come for the testimony as ‘this case is too important’.

Facebook does not respond to the parliament’s request.

As it was reported earlier, against the scandal with data leak of 50 million users and the use of it by Cambridge Analytica Company, Facebook reported on the simplifying of the privacy settings.

Zuckerberg was invited to the European Parliament to explain this incident. He should explain whether the use of European's data for the manipulation took place. It could be used by London’s Cambridge Analytica Company during Trump's election campaign.

On April 10, Zuckerberg has already testified in the hearing at the U.S. Senate.
