Поверенику за информације од јавног значаја и заштиту података о личности Родољубу Шабићу је на Годишњој конференцији Виктимолошког друштва Србије која се уз учешће великог броја представника науке и струке из више земаља широм света одржава 26 и 27.11.2015, уручено посебно годишње признање - "Награда за допринос унапређењу права жртава".

Захваљујући се на признању, повереник Родољуб Шабић је подсетио да је пре 18 година био један од оснивача Виктимолошког друштва Србије, да је дуг низ година функционер друштва, да је више година седиште Виктимолошког друштва било на адреси његове адвокатске канцеларије, али да све то не би требало да буде довољан разлог за доделу једног овако вредног признања.

Повереник је оценио да разлоге за ово признање треба тражити у бројним акцијама и интервенцијама које су спроведене и у области слободе приступа информацијама и у области заштите података о личности, а које су објективно представљале допринос праву и бољем статусу жртава. С тим у вези нагласио је да без обзира на чињеницу што је у вези са свим тим акицјама лично веома експониран, оне и њихови ефекти извесно нису само његова заслуга већ су заслуга тима који је формирао, који води и на чији однос према људским правима је поносан. Због тога, рекао је, награду доживљава и као признање за рад својих сарадника и захвалио се и у њихово име.

The Commissioner for Information of Public Importance and Personal Data Protection believes that the currently available budget projections for 2016 relating to the provision of funds for functioning of the institution of the Commissioner express obvious intent to make operations of this institution significantly difficult and to make them impossible for quite some time.

This is undoubtedly and best evidenced by the fact that the planned fund for salaries of employees at the Commissioner's Office is almost by 30% lower than the fund which was available to the Commissioner in 2015.

It is not quite clear who is behind this, since the Commissioner's associates received information that "the limit has been determined by the Ministry of Public Administration and Local Self-Government" in their communication with the Ministry of Finance. But even if we leave aside the question whether either of these ministries has the right to radically worsen operating conditions of an independent institution without any consultations with the Commissioner, one thing is obvious – the planned funds are not sufficient even to cover salaries of the existing number of employees in the Commissioner's Office, which means that budget "makers" plan dismissals in the Office.

In connection with the Draft Law on Personal Data Protection prepared by the Ministry of Justice, the Commissioner for Information of Public Importance and Personal Data Protection said that although the Action Plan for Chapter 23 passed within the framework of negotiations with the EU sets out that the Draft Law must be compliant with the Model Law prepared and made available to the Ministry of Justice and the Government by the Commissioner more than a year ago, this had obviously not been done so.

The Commissioner said that the Draft Law ignored the majority of problems observed in practice and if it was adopted as the law, not only would it make no contribution to improvement of the situation in the field of personal data protection, but could instead become the source of additional problems.

In his opinion submitted to the Ministry of Justice, the Commissioner listed numerous already well-known problems which are not addressed by the Draft Law.

Commissioner for Information of Public Importance and Personal Data Protection Rodoljub Sabic and Ombudsman Sasa Jankovic emphasized again the duty to protect addresses, unique personal identification numbers and other personal data even when public authorities and government bodies, the media and other organizations and individuals deal with events and persons of direct interest for the public.

"There is no objective, including transparency and the fight against corruption and other forms of crime, which requires violation of the human rights every one of us is entitled to and each of these objectives can be successfully and efficiently achieved with full respect of human rights", the Commissioner and the Ombudsman jointly emphasized.

The Commissioner for Information of Public Importance and Personal Data Protection initiated ex officio enforcement of the Law on Personal Data Protection in case of personal data processing when shareholders' personal data (names and surnames, home addresses, unique personal identification numbers, number of votes and number of shares) were published on websites of seven joint-stock companies.

Such publishing of data is yet another proof that entities handling citizens' personal data do not possess even basic knowledge of the Law on Personal Data Protection and other relevant laws and that their treatment of personal data protection does not satisfy the minimum standards.
