Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg declined requests from the U.K. Digital, Culture, Media & Sport Select Committee and Canadian Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics to testify at a hearing on the spread of disinformation, CNBC reports. In a letter sent to the committees, the social media company said it stands by its decision to send senior representatives in Zuckerberg’s place. The signatories from the original request said they were “very disappointed by this dismissive response.” Officials from Australia, Argentina and Ireland have also called for Zuckerberg to testify at the hearing. Meanwhile, Facebook Vice President of Consumer Hardware Andrew Bosworth addressed privacy concerns related to the company’s Portal video calling device.
