[.eu]: Aufmarsch der Bürokraten

Der Entscheidungsprozeß für eine einheitliche Zustimmung zum europäischen Rahmenentscheid für Zwangsdatenspeicherung steht kurz vor einem Abschluß. Lediglich Deutschland, mit einer Prüfung auf Vereinbarkeit mit der Verfassung, und Österreich, mit einer skeptischen Haltung der Datenschutzkomission des Bundeskanzleramtes, sind noch unentschieden. Als Antwort auf so viel europäische Einigkeit fordert Marco Cappato in einer Presseerklärung auf, diese Entscheidung zu überdenken:

Strasbourg, 21 November 2002

Recently the Council dispatched a questionnaire on traffic data retention asking to Member States their opinion on the possibility of harmonising data retention at the European level. The answers from Member States ministerial offices show that it should be easy for the Council to find agreement on a common framework decision on data retention, once the "technicalities" will be arranged. While Denmark "can support" a European instrument, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Spain, Portugal, the UK and Sweden warmly support the idea, with Belgium declaring to "contemplate" a European framework decision proposal (a Belgian unofficial proposal for European data retention has recently been leaked). Finland supports too, and even proposes to set a 2 years period for mandatory data retention, while France underlines that data retention is now "authorised" after the adoption of directive 2002/58/EC. The only delegations expressing some uncertainties are Austria (where there is disagreement between the Federal Chancellery that is sceptical and the Ministries of Justice and Interiors that are in favour) and Germany (underlining that the need for such European instrument and the compatibility with German constitutional law have first to be proved).

Declaration by Marco Cappato, Radical MEP of the Lista Bonino:

"The EU is giving the bureaucratic and illiberal answer of general surveillance to the demand for security from terrorism. The reading of sept. 11 tragedy given by major security analysts - who denounced the lack of human intelligence much more that of data collection technology - is therefore disregarded, and EU ministerial offices prepare the ground for a EU legal basis to implement generalised and systematic surveillance of citizens' communications. The European Union a-democratic decision-making process could soon bring in a situation in which the national appetites for increased expenditures on surveillance technologies will find satisfaction in closed-door meetings of ministerial officials in Brussels. Ministers and Governments will then follow, with their demagogy on security.
Far from bringing more security to citizens, this move is already diverting energy and resources from more effective intelligence activity."
