After 'winning' the Big Brother awards of Bits of Freedom, SyRI (System for Risk Indication) is now ruled unlawful. Article 8 (on privacy) of the European Convention of Human Rights has overruled the lawful basis for SyRI.

Judgement: "The fair balance criterion of the ECHR is not met."

And: The lawful basis for using SyRI is not transparent enough, and does not allow for adequate monitoring.
