debate on 25 January 2008 (9th Sitting) (see Doc. 11478, report of the Committee on Legal Affairs and Human
Rights, rapporteur: Mr Sharandin). Text
adopted by the Assembly on 25 January 2008 (9th Sitting).
2. Considering the work undertaken under the authority of the
Committee of Ministers, and especially that of the European Committee
on Legal Co-operation (CDCJ), which led to the elaboration of the
guiding principles for the protection of individuals with regard
to the collection and processing of data by means of video surveillance
of 2003 – and convinced that this subject merits more thorough analysis
– the Assembly recommends that the Committee of Ministers organise
a conference on video surveillance. Such a conference should involve, inter alia, persons possessing expertise
on video surveillance, both in the public and private sectors, as
well as representatives of civil society.
