Update on US monitoring of SWIFT system

A "humdinger" of a problem is how a UK privacy expert describes the row between the US and the EU over American access to data held by the SWIFT Interbank Exchange in Belgium concerning international bank transfers.

Meanwhile German papers are demanding US authorities' access to SWIFT must be stopped.
