In cooperation with the Burkinabe authorities and OCWAR-C project and with the support of UNODC and UNOCT, the GLACY+ Project organized a hybrid workshop on Burkina Faso’s laws on cybercrime and electronic evidence.
Participants from national institutions involved in Burkina Faso’s legislative reforms and their enforcement, were actively engaged in discussions on various topics. The dialogue focused on substantive provisions, procedural powers, interagency cooperation, the link between cybercrime and terrorism as well as on best practices to efficiently counteract these threats.
Burkina Faso was invited to accede to the Budapest Convention in 2019 and has been a priority country for the GLACY+ Project ever since. The Project will continue to support the country in its process of reviewing the legislation on cybercrime and electronic evidence.
