French data privacy watchdog CNIL condemned the Interior Ministry for the unlawful use of drones to oversee demonstrations and make sure people were respecting the COVID-19 lockdown. The authority stressed today that the use of such tools by the police nationwide broke the law in the absence of any regulatory framework. It found that the interior ministry had not at the time used mechanisms to blur the faces of people filmed by the drones in demonstrations or walking in the streets during lockdown.
