EU watchdog orders Europol to erase personal data unrelated to crimes
Al Jazeera, 27 Jan 2022
The European Union’s police agency, Europol, will be forced to delete much of a vast store of personal data related to individuals who have not been found guilty of any crime by the EU data protection watchdog.
The European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) has compared Europol’s practices with those at the American spy agency, as revealed by whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013.
