EDRI signs TACD resolution against PNR-transfer
On his last day as President of the European Parliament, Pat Cox finally decided to give in to the demands from the Legal Affairs committee and the majority of political group leaders. The European Parliament has now asked the European Court of Justice to annul the recently signed EU-U.S. agreement on transfer of airline Passenger Name Record (PNR) data to U.S. government agencies.
European Digital Rights has signed a resolution against the PNR-transfer from the Trans Atlantic Consumer Dialogue (TACD), a coalition of more than 60 consumer organisations in the U.S. and Europe. It calls upon the EU and U.S. governments to suspend the agreement until much stronger privacy safeguards are adopted. The letter was submitted to EU and U.S. government representatives at the EU-U.S. Summit in Dublin on 25 June 2004.
