UK Parliament Seizes Internal Facebook Documents

Zuckerberg – his prison mug shot?

After Mark Zuckerberg has twice failed to respond to a summons to answer questions in front of a UK Parliamentary investigation into Facebook’s failure to protect users privacy, and hold accountable for the Cambridge Analytica data breach outrage, the U.K. Parliament has seized a cache of Facebook’s confidential documents from an American software executive visiting the country on business.

The Guardian reports that Parliamentary officers used their legal powers to demand the handover of a number of Facebook documents which are believed to contain proof the social media giant knew a lot more than they have admitted about the Cambridge Analytica data scandal which saw the personal information on 87 million Facebook users mined by a third party software developer that intended to sell the data to political organisations. The decision to seize the documents came after Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg refused to appear before U.K. Parliament to testify about the data breach as he did before U.S. Congress. Zuckerberg instead offered to send a Facebook representative.

Damian Collins MP,  chair of the Culture, Media and Sport select committee, took advantage of a rarely used parliamentary power to force the founder of U.S. based software company Six4Three to hand over documents relating to Facebook while he was in the U.K. on business. Parliament went as far as sending a sergeant-at-arms to the software company founder’s hotel to give him a two-hour deadline to comply with its order and hand over the documents. When he failed to do so, he was escorted to Parliament where he was informed he faced heavy fines and even imprisonment for not complying.

He complied.

“This is an unprecedented move,” said Collins,  “but it’s an unprecedented situation. We’ve failed to get answers from Facebook and we believe the documents contain information of very high public interest.”

Collins added that Zuckerberg’s refusal to testify before the U.K. Parliament and testimony from a Facebook executive in February which they found to be misleading has forced Parliament’s hand in the matter. As usual, when challenged by the authorities, Facebook have acted as if they are above the law. Obviously Zuckerberg does not realise his friend and protector Barack Obama is no longer president. Well I’ve often said any adult who has a five year old’s haircut like the one Zuck sports cannot possibly be smart.

A statement issued by the Culture, Media and Sport select committee, stated: “We have very serious questions for Facebook. It misled us about Russian involvement on the platform. And it has not answered our questions about who knew what, when with regards to the Cambridge Analytica scandal. We have followed this court case in America and we believed these documents contained answers to some of the questions we have been seeking about the use of data, especially by external developers.”

The cache of legal documents from Six4Three make a number of allegedly damning statements about Facebook, claiming that the social media firm was aware of the implications of its privacy policy and actually purposefully exploited them, leading to the loophole which allowed Cambridge Analytica to collect the user data of 87 million users.

How Google Destroyed the Internet
The idea of the internet was that it would be a communications tool that freed information by making all public domain documents, libraries and archives accessible for everyone. Unfortunately the corporate monopoly men of Google, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon and Facebook and political control freaks had other ideas. They also understood the technolgy while the hippies and liberals ignored professionals warnings that internet systems would become a perfect toool of censorship.
