Innocent British citizens may be drawn into foreign criminal investigations after the Government agreed to EU-wide access to its 'Big Brother' databases, the Conservatives have warned.
All 26 other member countries will be able to check against sensitive personal information held on driver registration, DNA and fingerprint computer systems.
Where there is a match, a suspect-could be extradited to face trial abroad or - at the least - be forced to explain their movements or provide an alibi to prove their innocence.
Hundreds of thousands of innocent people placed on the national DNA database… councils permitted to use anti-terror powers to spy for bin 'crimes'… driver registration details sold to cowboy clampers...
The Government's own shocking disregard for our civil liberties and privacy has been well-chronicled by the Mail. Now it emerges that – having amassed vast Big Brother databases which would be the envy of any totalitarian regime – Ministers plan to offer them to all our EU neighbours.
