Om het bewustzijn van burgers over privacy en de bescherming van gegevens te vergroten, wordt vandaag voor de derde keer overal in de Europese Unie de "Data Protection Day" gevierd.
Verdachten worden herkenbaar in beeld gebracht, terwijl nog niet duidelijk is of ze wel daadwerkelijk schuldig zijn.

France's hard-line new immigration minister is set to implement legislation that would allow DNA testing of new arrivals, he has said. Eric Besson, who was appointed this month, said the tests would establish which foreigners were claiming visas by making up family ties with those already settled in the country.
Civil liberties groups have reacted furiously to the controversial government scheme, which was approved by the French parliament 15 months ago but does not come into effect until the appropriate Minister has signed the legislation. Protests had delayed that move until now.
Child support dodgers to lose passports and driving licencesAbsent fathers who fail to pay towards their children's upbringing could have their passports and driving licences summarily seized by bureaucrats. It represents the first time civil servants and Government agencies will be able to bypass the normal legal process in this way.
At present, the Child Maintenance and Enforcement Commission must apply to the courts to have a negligent father's driving licence or passport cancelled. But under legislation being unveiled by Work and Pensions Secretary James Purnell tomorrow, civil servants will be able to sign the orders themselves.
