Jeremy Phillips

According to the Curia Diary, the Court of Justice of the European Communities is scheduled to give its ruling in Case C-553/07 College van burgemeester en wethouders van Rotterdam v M.E.E. Rijkeboer, a reference for a preliminary ruling from the Dutch Raad van State, on Thursday 7 May. To refresh readers’ memories, the question referred is this:

“Is the restriction, provided for in the Netherlands Law on local-authority personal records, on the communication of data to one year prior to the relevant request compatible with Article 12(a) of Directive 95/46 … on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, whether or not read in conjunction with Article 6(1)(e) of that directive and the principle of proportionality?”.
