A fine of €500 for breaching personal data laws was imposed on a jeweller’s shop for installing cameras which were able to record the movement of staff and visitors at a neighbouring café in Nicosia, it emerged on Monday.

In a ruling, the administrative court supported the view of the personal data protection commissioner that installing the video surveillance system outside the jeweller’s breached the law.

According to the complaint, filed in 2016, the CCTV cameras were installed in such a way that they could record every move by the café owners, staff and customers without their consent.

In addition to the fine, the court also ordered that the cameras be removed and placed inside the jewellery shop.
