In France, the Lille Administrative Court announced its decision regarding the collection of names, surnames and date of birth of demonstrators detained within the scope of pension reform in a file.
The court ruled that the creation of this file was “illegal”.
The court decided that the Lille prosecutor’s office and the French Ministry of Justice should delete all personal information in the file in question, and the French state also decided to pay a total fine of 3 thousand euros to the plaintiffs.
Adelico, the association for the Defense of Constitutional Freedoms, the Lawyers’ Union, the French Human Rights Association (LDH) and the person whose initials are MX, applied to the court for the Lille prosecutor’s office to remove the file containing the information of the demonstrators detained as part of the anti-reform demonstrations.
As part of the pension reform that entered into force, the retirement age was gradually increased to 64.
