#PNR: Omröstning om EU-passagerarnamn kommer sannolikt att ske nästa vecka




flygplatsEn efterlängtad omröstning om EU-lagstiftningen om passagerarnamn (PNR) kommer sannolikt att ske nästa vecka efter månader av förseningar.

The vote has been made probable after officials in the Council of Ministers were able to speed up work on the EU’s data protection legislation. A vote on data protection is now scheduled in the home affairs committee on Monday 11 April night, with both data protection and PNR voted in the plenary on Thursday 14 April lunchtime.

Timothy Kirkhope, who has been working to deliver the PNR proposals for nearly five years, said: “Finally it looks like we are going to vote on EU PNR. It’s been five years in the making with many setbacks and much negotiation, but I believe the EU and the UK need this tool urgently.

“PNR will provide us with a vital way of detecting foreign fighters, drug traffickers and serious criminals. The patterns of behaviour that can be picked up from PNR data have proven invaluable in the UK where a national PNR system is in place. Rather than 28 different national systems being created we are now set to have a single law enabling the collection and sharing of information to give intelligence agencies a full picture, and to ensure robust privacy protections across the whole EU.”
