    Airline passengers' sensitive data to be handed to US Airlines will have to provide PNR data to US authorities to store for 15 years . Photo: Thinkstock By Christopher Williams Friday April 20 2012 THE personal details of millions of airline travellers will be handed over to American intelligence agencies for up to 15 years under measures approved in Brussels. Passenger records for everyone who flies to the United States from Europe will be given to the US Department of Homeland Security which claims it needs them to tackle terrorism. The European Parliament agreed to supply the records which include names, addresses, passport details, credit card and phone numbers, and even the internet address of the computer with which the ticket was booked. Sensitive personal data such as religious meal choices and relevant medical conditions can also be included. Civil liberties campaigners were outraged yesterday (Thurs) following the decision, raising concerns over how the data would be used and claiming that the rights of air travellers had been “sold out for fear of upsetting the Americans”. Under the new laws, US intelligence agencies will be able to store and exploit the data for up to five years to investigate terrorism and “transnational crime”, although names will be removed after six months. The data will then be retained for a further 10 years, under stricter access rules. The EU has been under strong diplomatic pressure to bring in the laws since 2010, when a temporary deal expired. Last year the US Senate’s powerful Homeland Security Committee unanimously passed a resolution demanding continued access to Passenger Name Records. The European Commission said the new laws would protect privacy better than the temporary arrangement. “The new agreement is a substantial improvement on the existing agreement from 2007,” said Cecilia Malmström, the European Commissioner for home affairs. The temporary data sharing arrangement was prompted by the discovery of a series of plots against transatlantic flights. They included the 2006 “liquid bomb plot” to kill up to 10,000 people by detonating home-made explosives on at least seven airliners. The three British ringleaders received life sentences in 2009. The new laws will expand the access American authorities have to Europeans’ private lives. In 2010 MEPs approved the permanent sharing of data from the Swift banking transfer system, which had been secretly handed over since September 11 attacks. Airlines welcomed the new laws on passenger data, arguing it should also be shared with at least another 11 non-EU countries, “or flights to these countries could be disrupted”. - Christopher Williams This is unconstitutional and the law has been Broken by EU and Irish Government Enda kenny, without any referendum of the Irish Republic of Irelands knowledge or say so on this Agreement By Europeon parliament, this is totally illegal and a Law has been broken,The EU should be accountable and the Irish government, read this Article Carefully, it was in the Irish times Newspapers and has been passed without any referendun, so this article when you read it, is treason, and unconstitutional in the Irish law without any referendum by( Eire ) People of Ireland.
