Zuckerberg did agree to public sessions with United States lawmakers last month, following a major global privacy scandal related to user data and political ad targeting.

Recent news reports have revealed that Facebook has been hit with another data scandal.

"The founder and CEO of Facebook has accepted our invitation and will be in Brussels as soon as possible, hopefully already next week [sic]", Antonio Tajani, president of the European Parliament said in a statement.

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

"I appreciate that Mark Zuckerberg has chose to present himself in front of the representatives of 500 million Europeans", he said.

Tajani welcomed Zuckerberg's decision of appearing before the European parliament and said that it was a step in the right direction towards restoring faith in the social media giant.

Earlier this week the Committee lamented Schroepfer's testimony, saying that the U.S. social network has continued to leave "significant gaps" in answers it has provided to British MPs. "The Committee will use the opportunity to address numerous inconsistencies in his previous evidence", Damian Collins, the committee's chairman, said in a statement.

"Given that these were follow up questions to questions Mr. Schroepfer previously failed to answer, we expected both detail and data, and in a number of cases got excuses", Collins wrote.

FACEBOOK chief Mark Zuckerberg has agreed to meet European Members of Parliament (MEPs) behind closed doors to answer questions in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, a top official said on Wednesday.

However, there are some Parliamentary members who are unhappy that the meeting will be behind closed doors. Guy Verhofstadt, the liberal leader, announced he would boycott the meeting unless it was public, asking why it could not be streamed on Facebook Live.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has agreed to appear before the EU Parliament in a move that has upset British MPs. The decision to hold a private meeting was brought only by a small majority.

Given Zuckerberg has thrice denied requests from United Kingdom lawmakers to take questions about his platform in a public hearing we can only assume the company made the CEO's appearance in front of European Union parliamentarians conditional on the meeting being closed.
