Deri asks for extension to biometric database pilot after authority admits it’s not leak-proof

Interior Minister Aryeh Deri on Sunday requested an additional nine month extension on the biometric database pilot program, only days after a dramatic hearing in the Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee, in which a representative of the Biometric Database Authority admitted the database is not leak-proof.

There was some speculation after the hearing that Deri might have to back off seeking an extension, which previously had been his reported intention, but ultimately he stuck to his guns, requesting an extension until December 31, 2016.
