Vinge advises Tele2 in proceedings before the CJEU regarding the swedish data retention regulation

December 23, 2016

Vinge has advised Tele2 in connection with proceedings before the CJEU where it has been adjudicated whether the compulsory obligation under Swedish legislation on the providers of electronic communication services to retain data information from their customers is compatible with the EU law.

The judgment was issued on 21 December 2016 and entails that Sweden cannot force telecommunications and internet service providers to generally store information concerning what their customers do on the internet or who they ring or send SMSs to.

Vinge’s team consisted of Martin Johansson and Erik Lagerlöf.

European Commission provides sanctions compliance guidance

The European Commission has recently issued three opinions regarding the interpretation of asset freeze provisions in certain sanctions legislation pertaining to Central African Republic, Ukraine, Libya and Syria. The opinions are also of relevance for other sanctions regimes which provide for the same or similar restrictions. Therefore, their practical relevance goes far beyond the sanctions regimes in the context of which they were issued and they therefore provide for helpful guidance regarding the required thresholds for sanctions compliance generally.
