Submission + - EU parliament rejects SWIFT data sharing (businessweek.com)

Menchi writes: The EU parliament just rejected an earlier decision by the EU council to grant the US unlimited access to all banking data (http://yro.slashdot.org/story/09/11/27/150234/EU-About-To-Grant-US-Unlimited-Access-To-Banking-Data). This earlier decision was made on the last day before the treaty of Rome, which would have granted the parliament a vote in this matter, came into effect. After the rejection of the treaty by a parliamentary group last week (http://yro.slashdot.org/story/10/02/06/1836221/EU-Committee-Says-No-To-Bank-Data-Sharing), the whole parliament rejected it with 378 to 196 votes.
