The EU should halt sharing of air passenger data with the US

Oxford think tank welcomes opinion of ECJ advocate-general

(Oxford, 24 November 2005) Recognizing the urgent and vital objective of protecting the privacy, data protection, and anti-surveillance rights of EU citizens from the onslaught of the global so-called war-on-terror conducted by the US government in flagrant violation of human rights, the rule of law, and international law, the European Court of Justice should follow the advice of advocate general Philippe Léger by upholding the challenge brought by the European Parliament against the European Commission and the Member States and annulling the decisions underpinning the deal whereby the EU shares air passenger data with the US, says a think tank based in Oxford.
