The agreement between the EU and the United-States on the processing of financial messaging data must not be implemented – Press release, 11 February 2010

AEDH protests against the enforcement of the temporary agreement between the EU and the USA on the processing of Financial Messaging Data from the European Union to the United States for the purpose of the Terrorist Finance Tracking Program. This agreement was approved by the Council on 30 November 2009, to avoid the co-decision procedure of the Lisbon Treaty (enforceable since 1 December 2009) and the observations made by the European Parliament.

We ask the European Parliament to stand against it.
