Refusal to apply FIPS leads to abuses
Privacy of sucker Dutch disappears at a rapid pace. Has the Dutch population been deliberately or accidentally lulled to sleep?
Privacy First, Amsterdam, 24 September 2009
The big problem with government databases is that what goes in never goes out even if it is wrong and has been "corrected" and "removed" according to officialdom.
Everything is copied and sits in all sorts of databases, often in separate parts that lack the overall view and lead to all sorts of erroneous conclusions.
This is what all the dullards who keep parroting government propaganda that they have "nothing to hide" overlook.
In the VPRO Themebroadcast of Wednesday 27 October 2010, this was aptly illustrated with the case of someone who was falsely accused because someone had misused his identity. Even after official paperwork declared identity theft, he was still detained after 12 years. Meanwhile, police databases show that he has an alias under which he commits crimes. That alias (other name) is precisely the name of the person who had stolen his identity to commit crimes with impunity! So the information in the police database has not been deleted but has been misinterpreted by someone who does not know the file, and that misinterpretation is now in the police database as fact. This is exactly what every scientist always warns about and what the government says cannot happen. So it is the opposite world and an example of what happens when you violate the Fair Information Principles (FIPs) refuses to apply, as is the case in the Netherlands. The European Personal Data Protection Directive 95-46-EC of 24 October 1995 (click HERE for the text), incidentally, does apply some Fair Information Principles. FIPs are fully incorporated into Canadian law. So that is one of the very few decent countries on this globe, which is food for thought.
