European Parliament finally caves on Amendment 138

Unsurprisingly, the Parliament's position is now a 'fair' hearing before disconnection and a judicial proceeding afterwards, though still bitterly contested by netizens' groups:
any measures may only be adopted as a result of a prior, fair and impartial procedure ensuring inter alia that the principle of presumption of innocence and the right to be heard of the person or persons concerned be fully respected. Furthermore, the right to an effective and timely judicial review shall be guaranteed.
