TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The meeting between Facebook Indonesia and House of Representatives` (DPR) Commission I that was scheduled to take place today, April 11, had been canceled.

Commission I Chairman Abdul Kharis Almasyhari said that the meeting failed to take place because of the social media giant’s high ranking official could not be presented in the hearing.

“Facebook Indonesia was set to present its Southeast Asian high ranking official. However, the official had to accompany other Facebook officials at the United States congressional hearing,” said Abdul Kharis today.
