Homo Digitalis complaint to the European Commission: An update
On June 26, Mr. Olivier Micol, Directorate-General for Justice and Consumers Director, informed us on the course of our complaint regarding non-compliance of the Greek Data Protection Law (Law 4624/2019) with the EU personal data framework.
The European Commission has carefully reviewed our complaint the Commission services are currently in contact with the Greek authorities to discuss how the LED and the GDPR are implemented in Greece.
If the Commission services will come to the conclusion, after the respective discussion, that the way how the LED and/or the GDPR have been implemented in Greece violates EU data protection law, the Commission has the possibility to launch an infringement procedure against Greece.
You may read the letter by Mr. Micol here.
On February 24, Homo Digitalis and “EKPIZO” Consumers’ Union sent a joint letter to the Greek Prime Minister and all leaders of the parliamentary political parties, requesting the immediate reconsideration of Law 4624/2019 on data protection. However, no action has been taken on the issue yet.
