Conclusion of an EU - New Zealand agreement, under negotiation, on the exchange of personal data for fighting serious crime and terrorism (A9-0131/2020 - Annalisa Tardino)

10-07-2020
Written explanations of vote

I am pleased that the European Union has a desire and a will to work with other countries in the fight against serious crime and terrorism that will help the EU to further protect its security interest. We have witnessed several terrorist attacks in the past. The seriousness of this issue therefore can´t be called into question. Active cooperation with other countries and pre-emptive action is important to prevent or at least to reduce terrorist activity and planned attacks. Concerning the personal data protection, not only maximum protection is the key but also the principle of minimalism should be guaranteed. The information provided should be limited to what is necessary and inevitable and the level of data protection should be essentially equivalent to the level of protection provided by the EU law. The common interest to fight against serious crime and terrorism is a precondition for fruitful discussion and active cooperation that will bring an incredible number of benefits.
