Merle Tilk is joined by Richard More O’Ferrall, spokesperson for the Greens Group, to discuss whether the EU Passenger Name Record (PNR) is the right measure to fight terrorism threats.
More O’Ferrall claims that most of the anti-terrorism measures currently being proposed by the European institutions are “repacked political projects rather than new solutions“. The PNR proposal is back on the agenda for example, even though massive data collection does not actually help to prevent terrorism, argues the spokesperson. Instead focus should be put on facilitating information exchange between security services and conducting more targeted surveillance, argues More O’Ferrall.
Passenger Name Record: “targeted surveillance more effective than massive passenger data collection” argue the Greens tweet
