    0

    BERLIN: Germany’s justice minister called for data protection laws across the European Union using Berlin’s stringent standards, with sanctions for US firms that violate them, in an interview published on Monday. Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger told the daily Die Welt that Germany’s strong privacy rules should become the standard for the 28-member European Union (EU), in response to revelations of sweeping US surveillance practices. “We need a package of measures at the EU level against mass spying by foreign secret services,” she said. “High German data protection standards should be the rule. US companies that do not uphold these standards should be banned from the European market,” the official added.
