Romanian Court on Data Retention

The Romanian Constitutional Court has held the Romanian law implementing the Data Retention Directive unconstitutional. The Court found that the law breached the constitutional and European Convention on Human Rights protections of privacy and freedom of expression. It remains to be seen how the Romanian executive will respond to the decision, but it represents a further blow to the data retention regime which has already suffered from adverse decisions in Bulgaria and Germany.
