Chapter Summary

French political motives also played a crucial role with regard to the development and use of the NSIS. During the negotiations, the French government questioned the public order criteria, with regard to definition of persons to be registered in the NSIS on public order grounds. France has much jurisprudence with regard to the use of the NSIS in immigration and visa law cases. This jurisprudence gives us a valuable insight into the main legal issues and practical problems with regard to the use of the NSIS in French immigration policy. France was the first Schengen state to ratify the CISA, on 30 July 1991. On 24 June 1989, the chairman of the CNIL, Jacques Fauvet published a critical letter on the development of the NSIS in the French newspaper Le Monde, entitled, ?Community of databases?.
