Romanian President asks for review of Big Brother laws

Romania’s Operative Council for Cyber Security (COSC) will start this week a review of legislative provisions on access to traffic data and cyber security, also known as the ‘Big Brother’ laws. Romanian President Klaus Iohannis has requested the review, according to a statement of the Presidential Administration. The aim is  to overcome the current deadlock by acknowledging the Constitutional Court’s decisions and by providing better public information on legislative measures and their effects.
