The Constitutional Court on Thursday, August 23, filed a case concerning the road traffic legislation standard that information about the punishments of drivers for violations is generally available. This provision stipulates that the information is generally available in the rest of the national register of vehicles and their drivers.
The case is based on the application of Janis Kāršenieks.
The assistant president of the Constitutional Court, Katey Strazda, told Latvian radio that the application indicated that the register of vehicles and their drivers had filed eight infringement registrations on 4 August 2018.
According to the disputed standard, this information is generally available. The petitioner believes that it is contrary to the fundamental right to inviolability of private life, enshrined in Article 96 of the Satvism.
By October 23 of this year, the Saeima must submit a response to the Constitutional Court with a description of the factual circumstances of the case and a legal basis.
