Up to now, the Office for the Protection of the Constitution has been allowed to pass on too much secretly collected data about people to the security and law enforcement authorities. The Federal Constitutional Court in Karlsruhe announced on Thursday that these extensive transmission powers are not compatible with the fundamental right to informational self-determination. The Federal Constitutional Protection Act must be revised by the end of 2023 at the latest, until then the provisions at issue will remain in force with restrictions. (Az. 1 BvR 2354/13)
