The US senator for the State of Florida, Marco Rubio, said he was "disappointed" by the installation of a facial recognition security system from China in the Dominican Republic.
As published by the US legislator, the Chinese government installs the "Safe City" program in the country, which would already be being tested at the Autonomous University of Santo Domingo (UASD).
He said that all the data collected by the system would be available to the Chinese government.RELATED
