Germany’s top data protection official has complained he cannot test how a spy computer program used by the police works – because the firm that made it will not help him examine it and the police do not have the source code.

So if the DPC cannot evaluate the software to determine whether it violates constitutional protections because DigiTask will not provide the source code without fees and conditions that the DPC finds unacceptable, what should Germany do? Will they continue to permit its use by police or will they halt its use?
