The Digital Rights Movement on Monday petitioned the High Court of Justice to declare the recently passed Biometric Database Law as an unconstitutional violation of the privacy and security of citizens that has “caused great harm to Israeli democracy.”
DRM lawyer Yonatan Klinger said, “From the moment the database went into effect, we all go on to the blacklist of potential suspects. The rule in our democracy until now has been very simple: if you did not break a law, you do not go on the suspects’ list… But from this moment… everyone changes into a suspect… and this must be annulled.”
The Biometric Database Law was passed by a 39-to-29 vote on February 27 after years of controversy and adjustments being made to the legislation to address criticisms.
