EDRi Evaluation of Data Retention Shows it has Significant Costs but no Benefits

In advance of the European Commission the publication of its long overdue evaluation report on the Data Retention Directive, EDRi has published its own "shadow report". This Directive currently requires long-term indiscriminate storage of records of every electronic communication of every person in the European Union. European Digital Rights (EDRi), concludes in a parallel 'shadow report' that European citizens have gained nothing from the Data Retention Directive, but lost their privacy. EDRi urges the Commission to respect the Charter on Fundamental Rights and reject data retention in Europe.
