Wong Kai-yi: Privacy Policy has exception circumstance

Jin Weichun, 135004, 2016/3/31

Wong Kai-yi, top Hong Kong privacy watchdog, considered the FBI-Apple case an exception in privacy dealing.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has managed to unlock the iPhone of dead San Bernardino terrorist without Apple’s help. Before then, Apple has been resisting the court order that FBI requiring access gunman’s phone for privacy keeping reasons.

Wong, Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data (Hong Kong), said although Apple’s technology support rejection was reasonable, he agreed with FBI’s hacking action.

Wong said Apple was the producer of mobile phone, they had the responsibility of protecting phone users’ privacy. But under that circumstance, the public interest and nation security should be take into account as well. The FBI needed access to the phone to find if the terrorists worked with others. So the FBI-Apple case was the exception.

The violation of Privacy Policy could be remitted if the case is related to public security and interest. Wong said Privacy Policy mainly restrained how the data owner collect or use data, so the policy would not deal with third part.

Urging to consider Anti-mask Law after Mong Kok riot, policemen having body wore video camera trial and other changes are getting public into panic of exposing their privacy.

Wong said he trusted the government on these kinds of decision-making. If police have reasonable doubts, they could ask for citizens’ cooperation. When police’s objectives of collecting personal data and using data do not fit, they are likely to violate the Privacy Policy.

Wong said public should have faith in government, and no evidence yet showed that Hong Kong government had abused personal data.
