ID-Fingerprint obligation to be reviewed by European Court of Justice
The local Administrative Court of Wiesbaden (Hesse, Germany), where a legal action against the obligation for fingerprints in identity (ID) cards has been started, will submit the case to the Court of Justice of European Union (CJEU).
The submission highlighted doubts on whether the inclusion of sensitive biometric data in IDs is compatible with fundamental rights. Still, the German law, which directly refers to the EU Regulation, was passed and came into force on 02 August 2021.
