Supreme Court of Argentina ordered the government to disclosed public data over social plans

The government has refused to give access to data related to social plans rejecting FOI request using the data protection act and the legal opinions of the DPA. The Supreme Court has ruled that FOI is a fundamental right and the the data should be provided to the applicant, an ONG called CIPPEC.

ECJ invalidates data retention directive

From PI website…

The ruling today from the European Court of Justice, invalidating the European Union’s 2006 Data Retention Directive policy, was strong and unequivocal: the right to privacy provides a fundamental barrier between the individual and powerful institutions, and laws allowing for indiscriminate, blanket retention on this scale are completely unacceptable.

As the Court states, it is not, and never was, proportionate to spy on the entire population of Europe. The types of data retained under this hastily-enacted Directive are incredibly revealing about our lives, including our daily activities and whom we have relationships with. It is right and overdue that this terrible directive was struck down…

Surveillance debate

From Privacy International web page…

In the wake of revelations that the UK Government is accessing wide-ranging intelligence information from the US and is conducting mass surveillance on citizens across the UK, PI commenced legal action against the UK Government, charging that the expansive spying regime is seemingly operated outside of the rule of law, lacks any accountability, and is neither necessary nor proportionate.

The claim, filed in the Investigatory Powers Tribunal (IPT), challenges the UK Government on two fronts. Firstly, for the failure to have a publicly accessible legal framework in which communications data of those located in the UK is accessed after obtained and passed on by the US National Security Agency through the Prism programme.  Secondly, for the indiscriminate interception and storing of huge amounts of data via tapping undersea fibre optic cables through the Tempora programme.

New law in Argentina pits transparency against privacy

The law was enacted on May 23, 2013 by Congress (Law 26.856). The new law provides that the Judiciary must publish all decisions and court case status online and in an official journal in the web page of the Supreme Court.

It also provide that in some cases the privacy and rights of third parties (workers and minors) have to be protected. Most of what the law requires was already implemented by several decision of the Supreme Court. The aim of the law is to achieve transparency, but it does not contain precise exceptions. The law is not very clear in the privacy safeguards. The data protection act is not mentioned at all in the law. Furthermore, each court of appeals has its own regulation and the law does not differentiate each different situation (e.g. labor cases, bankruptcy cases, family law cases, adoption cases, etc).
