Millions of children to be fingerprinted from 2009


EU governments are cooking up plans to fingerprint children as young as six (via Open Rights Group):

'This is a sea change,' said Ben Hayes, spokesman for Statewatch. 'We are going from fingerprinting criminals to universal fingerprinting without any real debate. In the long term everyone's fingerprints will be stored on a central database. You have to ask what will be the costs to a person's privacy.'
