Minister for Justice Dermot Ahern has revived plans to introduce laws to protect the privacy of individuals. The Minister is, apparently, worried about media intrusion in order to get a good story (Irish Times).
“There seems to be a growing disregard for the privacy of the individual as a basic human right.”
We are told that the Bill will ‘inhabit the space’ between data protection Acts on the one hand and security and crime provisions on the other.
I wonder would political corruption be one of the ‘inhabitants’ of that space?
