The House Judiciary Antitrust Subcommittee has announced in an official statement that Tim Cook, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, and Sundar Pichai will appear before the US House of Representatives on July 27 as part of its probe into Apple, Amazon, Facebook, and Google (via Business Insider).
The tech executives will be allowed to appear virtually for the antitrust hearing, which is a part of the committee’s investigation into the dominance of large tech firms.
“As we have said from the start, their testimony is essential for us to complete this investigation,” said Jerrold Nadler, the House judiciary panel chairman, and David Cicilline, the House antitrust subcommittee chairman.
The CEOs from Amazon, Facebook, and Alphabet said back in June that they would be willing to testify before Congress, according to reports from The New York Times, Bloomberg, and The Washington Post. The appearances of Zuckerberg and Pichai were contingent on the attendance of the other CEOs, Bloomberg reported last month.
Reuters had also reported last week that the big four tech platforms’ heads would testify before U.S. Congress. Lawmakers will be releasing a report on their antitrust investigation in the next few weeks.
