Privacy: Belgium once again given formal notice
The European Commission has launched an infringement procedure against the Belgian State. In question: the dismissals, last July, of the president of the APD and his co-director and whistleblower, Charlotte Dereppe. Revocations, recalls Didier Reynders, whose conditions do not respect the RGPD.

La european commission treated, this thursday, a letter of formal notice against belgium, the first formal step of an infringement procedure. In the viewfinder: the decision of parliament, on July 20, to dismiss the president of the Data Protection Authority (APD), David Stevens, and one of the co-directors and whistleblower, Charlotte Dereppe. As a reminder, these dismissals came after nearly two years of discussions, often behind closed doors, sometimes nightmarish, around revelations about conflicts of interest and errors of governance within the ODA. Sorrows proven in stride.
