EU warns US of 'grave consequences' from intel scandalSubmitted by Const. Clayton on Wed, 06/12/2013 - 12:38
Viviane Reding, the EU's Justice Commissioner, wrote a letter on Monday to US Attorney General Eric Holder demanding "swift and concrete" answers about the spy scheme when they meet in Dublin on Friday.
She set out seven detailed questions about the PRISM spy program, which were leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden and revealed by The Guardian and Washington Post newspapers last week.
"Programs such as PRISM and the laws on the basis of which such programs are authorized could have grave adverse consequences for the fundamental rights of EU citizens," she wrote.
