Czech police want more information on citizens’ digital communication

While some other EU countries already react on the ECJ decision on abolishing the European Commission Directive 2006/24/EC on data retention by preparing steps towards abolishing their respective transpositions of laws in their national legislative, the Czech Republic seems to head in the opposite direction. The Czech police officials call for enhancing the data retention regulation. One of the novelties is that the Czech police want to have an access to data on the IP address and port of the target point of the connection. Moreover, there is no news that the politicians or government are in preparation of any amendments of the Czech data retention law or even appeal to the Czech constitutional court.
