Ireland's "Kafkesk" approach to data protection, says Shrems

Austrian data protection activist Max Schrems described Ireland’s approach to protecting data on EU citizens as a waste of Irish taxpayers’ money.

Mr Shrems has been invited to appear before the Oriachos Judiciary Committee on April 27 to discuss a complaint against Facebook’s user data policy, which has been in the hands of Irish Data Protection Commissioner (DPC) Helen Dixon since 2018.

The DPC was invited to attend a meeting with Johnny Ryan, a senior researcher at the Irish Civil Liberties Council (ICCL), who described the Irish DPC as a barrier to EU data protection. “It will affect national status, employment and opportunities.”

A decade after Shrems filed his first complaint against Facebook with the DPC, and nearly three years after the last complaint against Facebook, Shremes told the committee that he believes the DPC has linked its data transfer case to unwanted legal entities.

Legal bills

Instead of schrems a decision in his case, not just litigation advocated by the Irish regulator renewable ,, said: “The courts are completely avoidable, but a reasoned criticism of the[undderschutjreguli’erun’gdervachsendenun’geduldandererreguli’erun’gsbehearden’gegenuberderdppestellte’invirtschaphtlichesrisikea’unde’inen’gutenruphphurirlanddar[etdureglementdepreatecti’onla’impati’encecrea’isantedesetresregulate’ursenversladpcaphphirme-T-IL”peasedesrisku’eseceaneamiku’esetdereputati’onpea’urla’irlande”[deceasedprotectionrulebookGrowingimpatiencebyfellowregulatorstowardstheDPCheclaims”poseseconomicandreputationalriskstoIreland”[undderSchutzregulierungderwachsendenUngeduldandererRegulierungsbehördengegenüberderDPPEsstellteinwirtschaftlichesRisikoundeinengutenRuffürIrlanddar[etdurèglementdeprotectionL’impatiencecroissantedesautresrégulateursenverslaDPCaffirme-t-ilposedesrisqueséeconomiquesetderéputationpourl’Irlande»[and-protectionrulebookGrowingimpatiencebyfellowregulatorstowardstheDPCheclaims“poseseconomicandreputationalriskstoIreland”[ഉംദ്ദെര്സ്ഛുത്ജ്രെഗുലിഎരുന്ഗ്ദെര്വഛ്സെംദെനുന്ഗെദുല്ദംദെരെര്രെഗുലിഎരുന്ഗ്സ്ബെഹൊ̈ര്ദെന്ഗെഗെനു̈ബെര്ദെര്ദ്പ്പെഷ്തെല്ല്തെഇന്വിര്ത്സ്ഛഫ്ത്ലിഛെസ്രിസികൊഉംദെഇനെന്ഗുതെംരുഫ്ഫു̈രിര്ലംദ്ദര്[എത്ദുരെ̀ഗ്ലെമെംത്ദെപ്രൊതെച്തിഒംലഇംപതിഎന്ചെച്രൊഇഷംതെദെസൌത്രെസ്രെ́ഗുലതെഉര്സെംവെര്സ്ലദ്പ്ചഫ്ഫിര്മെ-ടി-IL”പൊസെദെസ്രിസ്കുഎസെ́ചൊനൊമികുഎസെത്ദെരെ́പുതതിഒന്പൊഉര്ലഇര്ലംദെ”[പരേതരായprotectionrulebookGrowingimpatiencebyfellowregulatorstowardstheDPCheclaims“poseseconomicandreputationalriskstoIreland”[undderSchutzregulierungderwachsendenUngeduldandererRegulierungsbehördengegenüberderDPPEsstellteinwirtschaftlichesRisikoundeinengutenRuffürIrlanddar[etdurèglementdeprotectionL’impatiencecroissantedesautresrégulateursenverslaDPCaffirme-t-il«posedesrisqueséconomiquesetderéputationpourl’Irlande»[and-protectionrulebookGrowingimpatiencebyfellowregulatorstowardstheDPCheclaims“poseseconomicandreputationalriskstoIreland”
