Petition to oppose citizen database

A petition urging Tynwald to reject calls for a 'centralised citizen database' is amassing support.

The proposal is one of thirteen recommendations by a Select Committee on the jury system which was put before the court yesterday (Jemayrt).

Committee chairman and East Douglas member Chris Robertshaw says such a list would streamline the selection process for jurors; but opponents argue it would set a 'dangerous precedent' for government information gathering.

It's been set up by Cat Turner and endorsed by civil liberties campaigner Tristram Llewellyn jones.

He says any such information could fall into wrong hands.
