One small victory for privacy.
The Dutch High Court decided that a doctor may keep his Oath of Secrecy, even when his patient is involved with a crime. This because every person has right of health care, this is a basic human right. No one should be scared to stay away from a doctor because this doctor could call the police or alike.
I agree with this.
Fred Teeven, member of the Dutch liberal political party VVD and old prosecuting attorney, thinks that doctor act kinda “silly” about the Oath of Secrecy. Of course, for most politicians and justice people privacy is something that makes their work harder and so unwanted. I bet he is against encryption as well (personal joke).
Lately I am very concerned when it comes down to the privacy of people. It is something to think about and even more to worry about.
