Data-Retention Law Expected Next Year

Published fredag 17 juli 2009 kl 13.17
The Pirate Party's Christian Engström got a seat in the EU-parliament by propagating internet freedom and personal integrity

The Swedish version of the EU-directive regarding mass storage of details of phone and internet is expected to come into force by next spring, news agency TT reports.

The EU-commission sued Sweden earlier this year, for not having implemented the directive, something that should have happened in September 2007 at the latest.

The directive was produced in the aftermath of the terror-bombings in Spain in 2004 and London 2005. Since then, the debate has changed, not the least in Sweden, in favour of those who propagate personal integrity on internet and elsewhere. The success of the Swedish Pirate Party in the EU-elections in June is one proof of this.

A proposal from the government is expected some time in the autumn, with the law coming into force by April next year.
