The northern French city of Valenciennes has been warned over its potential use of CCTV cameras, as the Huawei machines have a “particularly intrusive character”, France’s data protection authority CNIL has said.

The Nord city’s monitoring was confirmed by La Commission nationale de l’informatique et des libertés (CNIL) on August 3.

An inspection from February 12, 2020 concluded that “an automated number plate reading device” as well as “assisted image analysis devices” had also been made available.

Moreover, the use of assisted image analysis devices is “likely to give rise to a high risk for the rights and freedoms” of the public.
