EU Ambassador: Ethnic origin should not be included in ID cards


The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation is set to enter into force in August 2021, which prohibits the processing of personal data, including ethnic and religious origin. The country has opened a debate on the right of the citizens if they want to have their ethnic origin included in the IDs and being a candidate for joining the EU, it is an imperative to align national legislation with European laws, said EU Ambassador David Geer when asked for a comment on Saturday as to whether the inclusion of ethnic origin in ID cards is against European legislation.

According to Geer, the relevant legislation is regulated by the General Data Protection Regulation, which stipulates that the processing of personal data, such as ethnic and religious origin, should be prohibited.
