Libra is a global crypto-currency by Facebook, set to launch in 2020.
"Facebook is continuing its unchecked expansion and extending its reach into the lives of its users".
The committee has repeatedly called Facebook's handling of private data into question in its critiques of Libra, and appears to be concerned that the new digital token could compromise sensitive user information.
Meanwhile, the Swiss Federal Data Protection Commission (FDPIC) confirmed that it will be meeting with the delegation specifically to discuss Libra.

Facebook's new cryptocurrency Libra hasn't even launched yet, but concerns about the project keep piling up.
A spokesperson told NZZ am Sonntag that Libra would be the focus of dialogue between the regulator and United States lawmakers.
"[The meeting] will give us an opportunity to share opinions about cryptocurrencies with our American counterparts".
It comes after David Marcus, Facebook's Libra project lead told U.S. senators earlier this year that he expected the Swiss agency to be the "cryptocurrency's" privacy regulator. In fact, the letter asked that "the Libra Association should inform him of the current status of the project so that he could assess the extent to which his advisory competences and supervisory powers would apply". A spokesperson for the commission's financial services department said that this branch is "monitoring market developments in the area of crypto assets and payment services, including Libra and its development". At the time of writing this article, it is known that the delegates will try to understand the basics of digital money and make a final decision on the Libra in the Senate after the visit.
According to the August 18th report by NZZ am Sonntag, the FDPIC is still waiting to hear from Facebook.
