Facebook execs take Centre s cover to skip Assembly committee hearing
| Wednesday | 16th September, 2020
During proceedings, Chadha said non-appearance of any Facebook representative before the panel was not only "contempt" of Assembly, but also an "insult" to the 2 crore people of Delhi.
As per principles of natural justice, we should give a last chance to Facebook vice president and managing director to appear before the committee.
Chadha said that the Delhi legislative committee is operating in its constitutionally lawful jurisdiction and does not conflict or weaken the jurisdiction of the Central government on similar issues.
Chadha clarified that the notice of appearance issued to Facebook is directly related to the incidents of violence that occurred in the Capital.
The proceedings before the Parliament are in no way connected to the role of Facebook in the riots," he added.
