BRUSSELS, Sept 8 An agreement between the
European Union and Canada to share airline passenger data that
they say is key to fighting terrorism cannot enter into force as
currently drafted, an adviser to the top EU court said on
"Certain provisions of the agreement envisaged, as currently
drafted, are contrary to the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights,"
Advocate General Mengozzi said in a non-binding opinion.
Judges at the Luxembourg-based Court of Justice of the
European Union are expected to rule in the coming months.
