EU-USA-PNR: NGOs letter to the European Parliament: Information on the upcoming vote on the EU-USA PNR Agreement


EU-USA-PNR: NGOs letter to the European Parliament: Information on the upcoming vote on the EU-USA PNR Agreement (pdf): Signed by nineteen NGOs including Statewatch:

"the EU-US PNR agreement not provide any benefit to European citizens. The proposed Council Decision places all of the legal burdens on the EU without requiring corresponding obligations from the USA. Under the proposal, the EU is expected to provide support from both Council and the EP, but neither the US President nor Senate is bound by this agreement. Only an international treaty with strong data protection safeguards based on European standards, which is also ratified by the US Senate, can provide improved legal security and protection of European citizens. Therefore we ask you to reject the agreement."
