Metro, 27 Aug 2012: 'Privacy club considers moves over border cameras'

"Privacy First Foundation may go to court to ban the deployment of cameras at the border. The club says the system violates privacy laws despite approval from the European Commission.

The cameras were introduced earlier this month at 15 locations along the Dutch border. This allows the military police to act more effectively against human trafficking or illegal migration, for example. Suspicious cars that fall under a risk profile are picked out and checked.

According to Privacy First, there is still no specific legal basis for the system dubbed @migoboras and everyone on border roads thus becomes "a potential suspect". The club further called the measure unnecessary and disproportionate.

The cameras were controversial when they were announced because of the invasion of privacy. The checks may have violated the Schengen agreement on the free movement of people and goods within Europe, but according to the European Commission, this is not the case. There is no judicial verdict on the camera system yet." (Source)
