The European Union (EU) is advancing plans to introduce a new “Digital Identity” that will be directly linked to a central bank digital currency (CBDC), a top Euro official has revealed.
The plan was exposed Wednesday on social media by Dutch Member of the European Parliament Rob Roos.
Roos posted a video on Twitter/X to reveal the outcome of a closed-door meeting between top Eurocrats about the plan to roll out the system to the public.
After leaving the meeting, the MEP took to X to warn the public about the “very bad news.”
Roos told his followers that one of the unelected bureaucrats leading the charge for digital cash and IDs is EU Commissioner Thierry Breton.
In a post on X, Roos wrote:
“BREAKING: Very bad news.
“The European Parliament and Member States just reached an agreement on introducing the Digital Identity, #eID.
“They ignored all the privacy experts and security specialists.
“They’re pushing it all through. I am not optimistic.
“But it is not too late yet,” he noted.
“Parliament still has to vote about this.
“Let your MEP know that you oppose the Digital Identity and that you want your MEP to vote against it!”
Roos also included a video in which he spoke about the plan.

“I just left the room where we had negotiations about the digital identity and I have bad news.
“The member states and the European Parliament came to an agreement.
“That means that probably, not far from now, the digital identity will be [in] effect in the European Union.
“Right after this agreement, Commissioner Breton said, ‘Now, we have the digital identity wallet; we have to put something in it.’
“And what he meant was the digital Euro, also known as a central bank digital currency [CBDC].
“And this is a very bad development.
“They always promise us not to make this connection.
“And even a lot of experts, privacy experts, and security experts, warned also last week [that] this is a very bad idea for our privacy and our freedom.
“And still, this digital identity is pushed through.
“But it’s not too late because we still have to vote on this in the plenary (meeting).
“So what you can do: Send your MEP from your member state an email and tell him or tell her that you are against this tool.”
As Slay News has been reporting, unelected globalists, corporate elites, and bureaucrats have been heavily pushing both digital IDs and CBDCs for some time now.
While the push has been mainly backing the individual rollout of digital cash and IDs, calls have been mounting for the two technologies to be merged into one.
Last year, a video emerged of one of the world’s most powerful bankers boasting about plans to eliminate cash and gain “absolute control” over the global population through the use of digital money.
The video features Agustin Carstens, the General Manager of the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) and a World Economic Forum (WEF) member, discussing the “advantages” of a cashless society.
Carstens, who previously served as the Deputy Managing Director of the IMF, issues a disturbing message about the future of the financial surveillance state and central banks’ plans to gain “absolute control” of everyone’s money.
“We don’t know who’s using a $100 bill today and we don’t know who’s using a 1,000 peso bill today,” the Mexican moneyman said, bemoaning the anonymity of cash.
“The key difference with the CBDC is the central bank will have absolute control on the rules and regulations that will determine the use of that expression of central bank liability,” Carstens said.
“And also we will have the technology to enforce that,” he added.
