ALDE calls to ensure compliance of Covid certificates with CoE standards

This week ALDE launched a current affairs debate and a full-scale report to look into compliance of Covid certificates with Council of Europe’s human rights standards. Damien Cottier (ALDE, Switzerland), who has been appointed rapporteur, undelined that while “this approach may be an important step towards the gradual return of currently limited individual and collective freedoms, it also poses major challenges in relation to  the  protection of  fundamental freedoms, particularly in terms of freedom of movement, non-discrimination in access to  public, parapublic or private  services,  the right to self-determination in relation to personal data, respect for privacy and proportionality”. PACE is set to prepare and adopt its report by end of June.
