Business urged to hand over cctv footage as part of shooting in north Sydney
The ACT Parliament has rejected calls to give law enforcement access to footage from the Australian Federal Police’s cctv surveillance cameras, saying any such release would infringe upon the rights of victims of crime.
MP Scott Ludlam accused the ACT Police and Department of Defence of seeking an exemption to the ACT Data Protection Act as a cover to obtain video data from the cctv cameras that could 크레이지 슬롯be passed on to police or the government.
Attorney-General George Brandis on Wednesday dismissed the criticism, saying it would have a damaging impact on public confidence in the Department’s work.
The Attorney-General said there were numerous complaints made to the ACT Privacy Commissioner’s Office about the police handing over information on video footage they were collecting for law enforcement.
Under the provisions of the Data Protection Act, police can be held to account by giving the Commonwealth or other government entities acces블랙 잭s to the data under the Freedom of Information Act.
That meant the ACT had been passing information up the chain until the last minute but the government was now looking to force law enforcement into doing the same for them, the Attorney-General said.
“When you are giving access to your information, you have to be careful of the safeguards you impose on that information to prevent it from being used for something unlawful,” Attorney-General Brandis said.
“If you need access to a photograph of a person for law enforcement purposes and it’s in the public domain, that person doesn’t know about it, and that person is potentially at risk or at least, I should say, at risk of harm.”
While the matter was subject to public legal consultation, Brandis did say there was an overriding concern over privacy and security.
“The ACT is committed to protecting the interests of victims of crime and I will be bringing that position into the Australian Parliament to help ensure the confidentiality of the information that we are giving to law enforcement,” Brandis said.
The ACT Crime Commission said it took a broad view when it came to protecting the privacy and security of criminal record information.
Chief executive Martin O’Connor said the issue was complex and would need to be examined in a complex process.
“There are two separate issues for us, on the one hand, on the information provided, and that is the concern around what are the safeguards that need to be in place to ensure we ensu이천출장마사지re that the information provided is protected and we have the appropriate law,” Mr O’Connor said.
