Shop keepers and others who place films and photographs of people they suspect of committing crimes on websites risk being fined up to €25,000 under new privacy legislation currently being drawn up, the AD reports on Monday.

The national privacy watchdog CPB is closely involved in drawing up the new rules which will be ready by the autumn. The aim is to stop private individuals ‘naming and shaming’ crime suspects.

CPB chairman Jacob Kohnstamm told the paper that everyone who infringes on other people’s privacy, whether or not a crime suspect, could face a hefty fine.
