(Worthy News) – The Knesset Law committee approved a bill entitled “Law to correct the police authority” designed to enable facial recognition cameras against civilians and “identifying vehicles on the streets,” reports Tech12.
At this point, the coalition will propose the law to the Knesset and lay the groundwork for implementing it into law.
A majority approved the draft of the bill of the committee. The only MK opposing the bill was Aliyah and Absorption Minister Pnina Tamno Shatah. The chair of the committee, Justice Minister Gidon Sa’ar, voted in favor despite opposing the idea of facial recognition cameras in the past saying: “There is a national mission to increase the rate of identification through technological means with oversight. This is a worldwide trend.” He admitted that the notion of a violation of privacy was “a big question.” [ Source: Israel365 (Read More…) ]
