Under result 4 of the Joint European Union and the Council of Europe iPROCEEDS-2 Project - Capacities of specialised investigative units and inter-agency cooperation further strengthened, an assessment on the investigation and collection/handling of electronic evidence under domestic legislations was conducted in all iPROCEEDS-2 countries/ area.
The assignment was performed by international experts with extensive practical experience in handling electronic evidence who drafted a comprehensive questionnaire and held online meetings with professional counterparts from all countries/area. Both activities were aiming to assess the respective capabilities by benchmarking against international standards. This undertake was spread throughout half a year, thus taking place from September 15th, 2020 to March 15th, 2021.
The achieved outcomes consisted of reports on the current situation as well as guidelines/ recommendations on the investigation and collection/ handling of electronic evidence in each iPROCEEDS-2 country/ area.
The iPROCEEDS-2 project aims at continuing to support the implementation of the experts` recommendations and guidelines in the priority countries/area.
