Euro-MPs agree air passenger data collection
Whilst we sit back and watch Greece burn (it ain’t Nero filldling this time)
the EU marches on it’s way to total control
BRUSSELS) – European lawmakers approved Wednesday plans to collect EU passenger data, a measure sought by the United States after years of controversy over how to protect personal information while fighting terrorism and serious crime.
Conservative British MEP Timothy Kirkhope who steered the text through the commission said that if finalised the deal would ensure the 28-member European Union (EU) had just one system, not a network of national arrangements.
The 9/11 terror attacks put passenger data high on the agenda, with Washington pushing the EU to adopt a PNR system to tighten up security.
