Use and transfer of Passenger Name Records to the United States

New study shows a breach of EU fundamental rights provisions

A study done by legal experts Prof. Dr. Gerrit Hornung (University of Passau) and Dr. Franziska Boehm (University of Luxembourg) shows that the new agreement with the United States on the transfer, retention and profiling of air passenger data (PNR) is in breach of EU fundamental rights provisions. The agreement, which is undergoing the ratification procedure in the European Parliament now, even provides less data protection than previous agreements from 2004 and 2007 which the European Parliament had refused to accept. The study was presented on 14 March 2012 by MEP Jan Philipp Albrecht and the co-author of the study, Dr. Franziska Boehm, in the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
