Civil liberties group calls for review of Data Protection Commission
The Irish Council for Civil Liberties (ICCL) has criticised Minister for Justice Helen McEntee for not launching an independent review of the functioning of the Data Protection Commission (DPC), which was recommended in a report by the Oireachtas Justice committee last summer.
DPC has come under fire from some MEPs in Europe over allegations that it is goes too easy on Big Tech platforms such as Facebook and Google when regulating them in relation to European data privacy laws. The DPC has rejected the criticisms.
