@fredl99 that doublespeak document is painful to read. If every single sentence needs the justification "but we do care about your privacy!"...

Yes, it clearly expresses a kind of split opinion. "We respect your right on data security but we have to care for our state's security.
And it shows the lack of understanding technical principles. That's why the solution of this problem shall be delegated to technicians.
The only hope is that many of these will explain to them that there is no such thing like "partial pregnancy" and also no practical technical solution for this proposal.

There's a detail too. A sentence in paragraph 6 says, "enable authorities to use their investigative powers which
are subject to proportionality, necessity and judicial oversight under their domestic legislation, while respecting common European values and upholding fundamental rights".

Defining proportionality, necessity, judicial oversight, European values and fundamental rights is left to each nation.

What's Hungary's government's opinion on this?
