Krista Kiuru (SDP), the Minister of Education, Science and Communications, has welcomed the decision by the Court of Justice of the European Union (CURIA) to prohibit telecommunications service providers from retaining subscriber data. Finns' confidence in the secrecy of correspondence, she underlines, has always been strong. “Naturally, we must clean out the paragraphs enacted due to the directive. We will gladly adhere to this decision,” Kiuru comments.

The CURIA on Tuesday stated that the Data Retention Directive, adopted in 2006, interferes in a “particularly serious manner with the fundamental rights to respect for private life and to the protection of personal data”.
