Argentine FA's Fan Registration System Will Not Be Implemented In August As Scheduled
Published July 30, 2013
AFA PLUS 'UNCONSTITUTIONAL': CLARIN reported that "before AFA Plus is applied, and while it is not even clear when this will be, the system is currently a huge database." Because of this, Public Bar Association President Jorge Rizzo said, "Argentina is the only country asking for the authority to ask for people's fingerprints. Here is a civil association, the AFA, and a private business, Telecom, that are violating personal rights with the AFA Plus." Rizzo assured that "to demand this, it would have to be a law in Congress, not an AFA measure. People can request protection to avoid giving this type of information to AFA Plus administrators" (CLARIN, 7/29).
