UK caves in to EU demand to share criminal suspects’ data

Council of the EU had warned UK could be excluded from crime-fighting system if it didn’t ‘review’ its data-sharing policy.

The British government plans to grant the EU access to data on British-based criminal suspects, after years of pressure from the bloc.

Security Minister James Brokenshire announced Monday that following a review of the policy of limiting data sharing via the so-called Prüm system of law enforcement, the U.K. government now intends to start exchanging suspects’ data held in England, Wales and Northern Ireland with EU countries.
