Stormy developments in the Cambridge Analytica-Facebook case (BINTEO)


Cambridge Analytica CEO Alexander Knicks has been released following a scandal involving Facebook's use of personal data to influence the 2016 US presidential election.

The decision for Mr. Knicks came after the screening of secretly videotaped videos of the British Channel 4 which showed him discussing with a potential client ways of trapping political opponents, from bribery to meetings with beautiful women.

The company's Board of Directors said in a statement that the CEO's comments and the other categories "do not represent the company's values ​​or businesses".

Meanwhile, the Times reveals today that Cambridge Analytica's parent company, the SCL Group, had trapped its political rival client in St. Christopher and Nevis in the Caribbean.

A man paid by the company offered a $ 1,5 million commission to the politician in exchange for a cheap land purchase in the island nation. The meeting during which the offer was made, which after bargains seemed to be accepted by the politician, was secretly videotaped and used against him.

Cambridge University researcher Alexander Kogan, whose personality test application was used by Cambridge Analytica to obtain the personal data of 50 million Facebook users, also spoke on BBC radio.

The Moldovan-based researcher said he had been used by both the British company and Facebook as a "scapegoat" in the case. He asserted that his confession had been obtained through torture, but that his confession had been obtained through torture and that his confession had been obtained through torture.

The revelations about the illegal acquisition of personal data of Facebook users by Cambridge Analytica in order to influence the US elections were made by the former employee of the company Christopher Wiley in the Observer last Sunday.

UK Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham will apply through the British courts for a search warrant at the Cambridge Analytica offices in London.

Meanwhile, the head of the British Parliamentary Committee on Culture, Damian Collins, has asked in a letter from the founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, to testify before the members of the committee on how to manage the personal data of the users.
