> (NL) Fingerprints database decreases security
> A political debate is enrolling in the Netherlands about the desirability and the feasibility of the creation of a database with the fingerprints of every person living in the Netherlands. This is partly practice in the Netherlands. Since September 2009 fingerprints - that everybody who applies for a new passport or ID is obliged to give - are being stored in a decentralised database. The plan is to create a centralised database that can also be used by different law enforcement institutions. But a majority in parliament and all privacy watchdogs are not in favor of this plan. Jaap-Henk Hoekman (senior scientist at TNO and an associate professor in security and applied cryptography at the Radboud University Nijmegen) thinks such a database will make the passport less secure, instead of more.

> (NL) Shoplifters to pay extra fine to shopkeeper
> A new program will become active in the Netherlands for shopkeepers who catch someone stealing from their shop. They have to register for "Afrekenen met winkeldieven" ("arrange the bill with shopkeepers") If they catch a shoplifter and hand the person over to the police, this person (the shoplifter that is) will be 'automatically' sentenced to pay a fine of 151 Euro to the shopkeeper. The fine comes on top of whatever other sentence the shoplifter gets.

> EDPS against passenger data storage
> European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) declares that there is no proof that massive storage of data of airplane passengers (PNR) by the EU would be needed to combat organised crime and terrorism. The European Commission wants to force airplane companies to hand over detailed information about their passengers (including mobile phone numbers, credit card information etc.). The EPDS states that there is no relation shown by the commission between the massive storage of data, and its use. The advise is to narrow down the amount of data stored, and only keep that information stored for no longer than 30 days.

> British man prevented from flying home from Canada because his name was on America’s no-fly list
> The Economist reports that that a British man was prevented from flying home from Canada because his name was on America’s no-fly list. Dawood Hepplewhite was not allowed to board his Air Transat flight from Toronto on February 13th when it was discovered that he was among the 8,000 to 10,000 people prohibited by the US from flying over its airspace. Even though Canadian airlines are not under any legal obligation to give passenger information to the US, Mr Hepplewhite was subsequently denied flights on Air Canada and British Airways.

> This interactive map concerning the death of migrants attempting to cross Europe's borders contains a wealth of information concerning EU countries, statistics and the ways in which migrant deaths have occurred. Based on information collected by United for Intercultural Action, No Border and Fortress Europe, and on cartography by Olivier Clochard of Migreurop and Philippe Rekacewicz from le Mond Diplomatique, it is a very useful resource.

> European Commission and Europol refuse to supply data on the implementation of the EU-US TFPT (SWIFT) agreement as it is "Top Secret"
> Tony Bunyan, Statewatch Director, comments: "If Europol are saying that the information requested is classified as "Top Secret" this is an abuse of the EU's classified information system. The data requested is aggregated containing no personal or operational information. The Agreement was negotiated in secret now it seems its is to be implemented in secret - out of sight of governments, parliaments and people. This sets a very dangerous precedent for future agreements with the USA."

> The EU’s new politics of movement
> The freedom enjoyed by EU citizens to live and work in each others' countries is a unique liberty. It is the basis around which European governments have tried to build a single border, a compensatory system of co-operation between police, judges and immigration officers and a common refugee policy. But hardening attitudes towards immigration in many countries and widening policy disagreements between governments and the EU's institutions are exposing fault-lines in this structure. As the cracks threaten to widen over the coming months, policy-makers face some tricky dilemmas
