The Guardian, June 22, 2000: Two Chinese men suspected of being members of the gang responsible for the deaths of 58 illegal immigrants in a lorry at Dover have been arrested, Kent police revealed last night....The Belgian interior ministry yesterday admitted that it may have briefly detained some of the 58 who died but had let them walk free because its detention centres were full...Pascal Smet, a ministry spokesman, told the BBC: "Belgium is not a police state where we put a police agent against every person and where we follow people."

I assume Mr. Smet seeks to keep more such tragedies from happening.

Thank you for that Carol. Quite ironic indeed.

maybe the Universal Declaration of Human Rights needs an "Everyone has the right to anonymity" clause (though you'd think such declarations as "No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy" would cover it).

I am amazed and terrified by how many people there are who completely don't understand why this sort of thing is a bad idea.

There are dumb ideas proposed at UN conferences almost every day of the year. This isn't even an actual proposal, it's just some comments in a meeting.
