FINAL WARNING AND TIME EXTENSION FOR DATA CONTROLLERS TO COMPLY WITH REGISTRATION OBLIGATIONS:

However, the extension of the president’s authority to extend the term of the prohibition for almost a year can be interpreted as a sign that the term of termination prohibition and unpaid leave is likely to be extended further.
