European Court of Justice is addressed in case regarding the annulment of the decision of Data State Inspectorate

On 1 June, the Department of Administrative Cases of the Supreme Court stayed proceedings in case in which Data State Inspectorate imposed on the applicant an obligation to delete a video published on the internet, in which police officers at the police station were recorded. The Supreme Court, by referring preliminary questions to the European Court of Justice, seeks to ascertain whether such person’s actions, that are dealt with in the present case, – video-recording of police officers at the police station at the time of carrying out their duties and publishing the recorded material on the internet – correspond to Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 24 October 1995 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data. As well as the Supreme Court looks forward to find out whether Directive 45/46 can be interpreted in a way that that the above-mentioned actions can be considered as processing of personal data for the purposes of journalism within the meaning of Section 9 of the Directive. Proceedings in the case are suspended until the entry into force of ruling of the European Court of Justice.
