Ombudsman wants solution for conscientious fingerprint issue




The National Ombudsman wants a solution to the small group of Dutch fingerprint will not issue the request of an identity card or passport. Because they have no identity, made their life difficult, the Ombudsman.

Fingerprint Who has no identity, can not open a bank account, mail pick treated or vote by a hospital or outpatient clinic at PostNL service, writes Alex Brenninkmeijer, the National Ombudsman. Moreover walk Dutch identity without the risk of arrest, because wearing is compulsory.

Brenninkmeijer therefore wants the government comes up with a solution for principled objectors so they need to be issued. Fingerprints There currently running multiple lawsuits about biometrics in identity documents, but in the meantime, a temporary facility come, argues Brenninkmeijer. “Especially now that the government has found that there are several snags to the recording and storage of biometric data are, I myself do not consider it proper to leave it. Principled objectors in the cold”

Moreover, the government has a change of Passport in preparation, so people do not have to issue longer. Fingerprints to apply for an identity card To apply for a passport should that be still. The identity card is so no longer regarded as a travel document, which is the issue of fingerprints according to European directives no longer required. The amendment to the Passport may take some time: later this month the House bends for the first time about the law, which as yet no introduction will be. A spokesman for the Interior Ministry can not indicate when the law should be entered.
