Question for written answer E-002989-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Eva Maydell (PPE)

 Subject:  Effect of General Data Protection Regulation on litigation
 Answer in writing 

In the context of litigation it is normal practice to introduce evidence of past events, often dating back more than a year. In this connection, how can legal certainty be ensured where litigation necessitates the submission of information about past events if the information in question has been duly deleted under the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation?

Will the deletion of personal data as required by the General Data Protection Regulation not impede inquiries in both criminal cases and legal disputes?
