MINSK, 22 October (BelTA) – The establishment of a personal data protection authority is being discussed at a government meeting hosted by Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko on 22 October, BelTA has learned

The head of state recalled that in May 2021 a law was adopted to protect people's rights while processing their personal data. “The government and the Operations and Analysis Center believe that a separate authority should be set up to supervise the observance of this law,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

He demanded a report on the outcomes of a comprehensive study of this issue: what options were considered and what is proposed to be done in this field taking into account international practices. “And, most importantly, our capabilities,” added the president.

“Why don't you consider assigning the function of ensuring personal data protection to one of the existing bodies?” the head of state asked.
