Today, Monday 21 November 2018, ApTI, Privacy International, EDRi and 15 more digital rights organizations, including Homo Digitalis, sent a letter to the European Data Protection Board, notifying also the Romanian Data Protection Authority and the European Commission.

The reason for this letter is the abuse of the data protection law provisions, in order to unveil the journalistic sources behind the RISE Project in Romania. This project aims at shedding light into corruption and money laundering cases. With this letter the organizations request that the abuse of the GDPR provisions comes to an end, since it puts into risk the freedom of the press in Romania.
