Romania's Ministry of Finance wants a database with all bank accounts

A draft legislative project wants to automatically collect all financial data from all opened bank accounts as a way to combat fraud. The Association for Technology and Internet (ApTI) together with 6 other Romanian NGOs argued against such measures of mass surveillance and commented that they are disproportionate and violate the right to privacy.

The ministry's draft law and ApTI's opinion are available only in Romanian.
