UN Special Rapporteur On Terrorism Releases New Report On Right To Privacy

Posted by Info on 20/01/2010

UN Press release 19 January 2010

Special Rapporteur on human rights and counter-terrorism releases new report on the right to privacy and will present his report to the Human Rights Council in Geneva during the second week of March.

The current wave of privacy-intrusive measures in the name of countering terrorism should be countered through a global declaration on data protection and data privacy.
The new report critically assesses practices such as racial or ethnic profiling, creation of privacy-intrusive databases and resorting to new technology, such as body scanners, without proper human rights assessment.
