Bahnhof, foundation report Sweden to EC over data retention

Friday 12 September 2014 | 12:43 CET | News
Swedish ISP Bahnhof and the 5th of July Foundation said they are reporting the Kingdom of Sweden to the European Commission for upholding the principle of data retention. They are urging the commission to start proceedings against Sweden for ignoring the judgement of the European Court of Justice of 08 April, which declared the EU Data Retention Directive invalid. They said Sweden is failing to fulfil its obligations according to the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, articles 7 and 8, 'Respect for private and family life' and 'Protection of personal data'.
