EU Moving Toward Universal Biometric National ID Cards

• https://www.technocracy.new By: StateWatch

The European Commission has proposed a host of new measures aimed at "denying terrorists the means to act" which include the mandatory inclusion of two biometrics – fingerprints and a facial image – in all ID cards and residence documents for Union citizens and their family members issued by EU Member States.

According to the Commission's proposal: "Up to 370 of the 440 million citizens in 26 Member States (DK [Denmark] and UK do not issue ID cards) could hold national ID cards," although "identity card ownership is common and compulsory in 15 Member States" and there are five other Member States in which citizens "are obliged to hold a non-specific document for identification purposes. In practice this very frequently is an identity card."
