Slovenian operators told to destroy retained data

Monday 14 July 2014 | 11:21 CET | News
Slovenia's Constitutional Court has annulled the parts of the Law on Electronic Communications that required telecommunications operators to retain metadata on customer traffic, reports Siol. The Constitutional Court decided the case earlier this month, after the EU court in April annulled the European Data Retention Directive, which was the basis for the Slovenian legislation. The Constitutional Court has also ordered the destruction of the data collected to date by operators.
