Vers une remise en cause de la légalité du FNAEG ?

Abstract : The National Automated Genetic fingerprint File (FNAEG) is a French police file created in 1998 to help identifying repeat perpetrators of the most serious crimes. The texts which govern its use have been the subject of significant evolutions over time. Firstly, the reasons for inclusion in the file have been considerably expanded, to the point that it currently contains more than 5% of the French population. Secondly, the implementation of so-called "familial searching" turns it into a file of "honest people". Taken separately, but even more when considered in combination, these two transformations profoundly alter the purposes of the file, making them incompatible with the principles affirmed by the Constitution and the European Convention on Human Rights. A deep reform of the FNAEG is therefore necessary.
