Philippines says wants to probe Facebook over data breachThe Philippine government said Friday it was investigating the breach of data of its citizens who use Facebook, after a massive leak of user information to British political consultancy Cambridge Analytica. Manila’s National Privacy Commission has written to Mark Zuckerberg requiring the Facebook chief to submit to the government body documents that would shed light on the scope and impact of the leak on Filipino users. “We are launching an investigation into Facebook to determine whether there is unauthorised processing of personal data of Filipinos,” said a copy of the letter, released to the press Friday.
