Evian: De fire største EU-landene har på et møte i Evian bestemt seg for å innføre nasjonale ID-kort med biometriske data: A source close to French President Jacques Chirac’s office said there was agreement at the meeting on the principle of having compatible biometric data included on national identity cards, notably by ensuring that fingerprint information would come from the same fingers.
The ministers envisaged having such information checked for visitors entering and leaving the EU’s Schengen area.
The source said there was also discussion on the possibility of extending the biometric data system to driving licences, which have proved easy to counterfeit in the past.(afp)
