      EU to allow law officers access to electronic personal data

      Following the US terrorist attacks on September 11, the European Union has
      ordered the European Commission to draft a law allowing law enforcement
      professionals access to electronic personal data, which before was
      protected from the prying eyes of the law.

      The new law will allow European law enforcement teams "to investigate
      criminal acts involving the use of electronic communications systems and
      to take legal measures against their perpetrators."

      Ministers have mulled various measures in response to the tragedies.
      Though the law will in effect open up electronic personal data, a council
      communique stated that a particular effort would be made "to strike a
      balance between the protection of personal data and the law enforcement
      authorities' need to gain access to data for the purpose of criminal
      investigations."

      "First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out because I was
      not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not
      speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the
      Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for
      me, and there was no one left to speak for me." - Pastor Martin Niemoller
