MEPs call for infringement procedure against Ireland
The European Parliament voted on 20 May in favour of a resolution calling on the European Commission to open an infringement procedure against Ireland for failing to enforce the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
In a resolution on the Schrems II case, a landmark judicial ruling that invalidated the EU-US Privacy Shield, MEPs expressed disappointment that in the judicial proceeding, Ireland’s Data Protection Commissioner (DPC) preferred to bring the legal proceeding to court rather than taking a decision on its own, as it was in power to do.
However, the real point of contention is the fact that the Irish Data Protect Authority has still not decided on many of the privacy complains that have been filled since the entry into force of GDPR in May 2018.
