Interpol chief calls for global electronic identity card system
Source: Help Net Security

The head of INTERPOL has emphasized the need for a globally verifiable electronic identity card (e-ID) system for migrant workers at an international forum on citizen ID projects, e-passports, and border control management.

Speaking at the fourth Annual EMEA ID WORLD summit, INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble said that regulating migration levels and managing borders presented security challenges for countries and for the world that INTERPOL was ideally-placed to help address.

"At a time when global migration is reaching record levels, there is a need for governments to put in place systems at the national level that would permit the identity of migrants and their documents to be verified internationally via INTERPOL," said Secretary General Noble.

"The vast majority of migrants are law-abiding citizens who would like to have their identities verified in more than one country using the same identity document. If countries were to issue work and residence permits in an e-ID format that satisfied common standards internationally, then both the migrant workers and the countries themselves would benefit because efficiencies would improve, security at the national and global level would improve and corruption would be reduced."

4. Those Europeans sure do love their Big Brother governments
I wonder if showing him my sphincter would qualify as my global ID?

Extremely disappointing.

9. After their conduct regarding Assange, just another reason Interpol is past its prime.
I propose they call the new card program Feudalism And State Corporations Industriously Screwing Millions (F.A.S.C.I.S.M.). If that's taken, it could be named History Ignores The Lessons Enumerated Repeatedly (H.I.T.L.E.R.).

10. Making rules based on the lowest common denominator again
The thugs call the shots. A few criminals make governments and organizations treat all people like they're criminals.
