“We are surprised and disappointed that in spite of a meeting scheduled with CPVP to discuss its recommendations on June 19th, the commission is launching this attention-seeking legal action against Facebook Belgium,” stated Tina Kurlow, the social network’s spokesperson. “Even though we are confident and we trust the CPVP case is unfounded, we are happy to continue working with the commission in order to address their concerns,” she added.
The first stage of the summary proceedings on Thursday will not lead to discussions or exchanges on the content of the case yet, explained the spokesperson for CPVP. It will aim to set a timetable for the legal process, she added.
