Bulgaria's SAC Rules Fingerprint Identification in Hospitals Is Not Valid
The Supreme Administrative Court has ruled that fingerprint identification in hospitals is not valid.
The decision of the three-member court was taken on Tuesday and fingerprint identification is terminated until the final ruling, reported BGNES.
The supreme magistrates ruled: “It is obvious in this case that the introduction of fingerprint identification, instead of a document which contains information about the health data of persons and grants access to the data in a virtual environment (an electronic health ID), complicates trans-border legitimisation. This contradicts EU legislation since it is aimed at unifying the type of identification in order to ensure movement, security and medical assistance in EU countries.”
Meanwhile, the Health Ministry announced that they will appeal the decision.
