US Denied Berlin Against Anti-Terror Bank Data Deal

The new German justice minister says Berlin is not comfortable with an EU measure that would grant US authorities access to European banking data. Now it seems likely that the Germans may scupper the deal, which is supposed to be pushed through at an EU meeting in Brussels at the end of November.
Hands off our banking data: Privacy rights and data protection must be discussed before a deal allowing US access to European bank transactions can go through, say the Germans.
