Reports are made of each investigation. The report describes the investigation activities in general terms and contains the conclusions on the texts, activities or methods that could jeopardize the protection of the constitutional rights and fundamental freedoms of citizens, or the coordination and effectiveness of the services reviewed. The reports also contain recommendations to remedy any shortcomings. These reports are first sent to Parliament and the competent ministers. The Standing Committee I can decide to make all or part of its investigation reports public.

  • In the context of the investigation on Edward Snowden’s revelations, the Standing Committee I called on external experts i.e. PhD Mathias Vermeulen (“Les révélations de Snowden, interception massive de données et espionnage politique. Etude des sources ouvertes”, 23 Oct. 2013) [here] and Prof. Annemie Schaus (“Consultation sur les règles en vigueur en Belgique en matière de protection de la vie privée eu égard aux moyens autorisant l’interception et l’exploitation à grande échelle de données relatives à des personnes, organisations, entreprises ou instances établies en Belgique ou qui ont un lien avec la Belgique”, 27 Nov. 2013) [here]. These expert reports were discussed on 12 March 2014 at the meeting with the senatorial Committee responsible for monitoring the Standing Committee I. They do not necessarily express the positions of the Standing Committee I.
