Senators Consider PNR Plan
PRIVACY LAW—CZECH REPUBLIC & EUJanuary 28, 2011
The Czech Senate is recommending creating a system of guarantees to prevent the transfer of data on air passengers to countries outside of the EU without the member state's consent, the Prague Daily Monitor reports. During a debate of the European Commission's statement on global transfer of passenger name records (PNR), Czech senators demanded that "all possible EU agreements with other countries on the transfer of these data be approved by national parliaments," the report states. As PNR include trip dates, contact data, payment, luggage and other information, the senate's commission for privacy protection believes the extent of the collected data is excessive.
