EC stops “Big Brother” Law infringement procedure against Romania

The European Commission (EC) on Thursday brought to a halt the  infringement procedure opened against Romania in 2011 over the non-implementation in due time of the provisions of the Directive 24/2006 on storage of confidential data by communications operators, following the passage by the Romanian parliament of the “Big Brother” Law in May of last year. Romania has avoided the notification by the EC of the EU Court of Justice (EUCJ) in Luxemburg following the passage by parliament last year of the “Big Brother” Law on the retaining of data generated or processed by suppliers of electronic public communications networks and  suppliers of electronic public services, as well as on amendments and additions to Law no 506/2004 on processing of personal data and protection of private life in the electronic communications service, according to a Ministry of Foreign Affairs press communiqué.
