A spokesman for Hamburg’s data protection ombudsman stated, the city has opened non-compliance procedures against Facebook, the world’s biggest social network which in recent days have been accused of abusing its users’ data.

In a statement, the spokesman said, as a first step it would be holding a hearing on the accusations.
