lets NOT forget the other ECJ case
"The Commission's infringement process has three steps, the first being a Letter of Formal Notice requesting information. Second comes a Reasoned Opinion - today's step. Finally the Commission can refer the UK to the Court of Justice."
lets also NOT Forget the Second Reasoned Opinion Regarding the related European Court of Justice (ECJ) case
“The United Kingdom currently faces prosecution in the European Court of Justice, after the Government failed three times to explain to the European Commission’s satisfaction why the relevant European Communication Privacy Directives had not been implemented in the UK.”
hmm the time line for UK compliance expire Christmas eve 2009 for the reply ? that never came, so the EU wheels turn for an automatic ECJ case now ?
Regards the ECJ case, ISP review reported that the Home Office responded (late) on 18 January.
There’s been no statement by the European Commission or the Home Office, and the Home Office have refused to disclose the content of their response (or indeed either of the preceding responses).
So its all a bit of a mystery."
