In Finland, eight legal experts interviewed by Parliament’s Constitutional Law Committee opined that the government’s proposal for changing the Act on Data Protection of Electronic Communications is unconstitutional.

Last week, the committee stated that the bill for an amendment to the law is not unconstitutional and it can be passed as a regular law, not requiring a constitutional amendment.The proposed law would allow employers to investigate the log data of workers’ e-mails.

If Finnish Parliament passes the bill into law, Finland’s reputation as a country under the rule of law, which respects the rights of the individual, could be in danger - said Professor Antti Saarenpää.
