iPROCEEDS-2: Regional Training of Trainers on delivery of the Specialised Judicial Training Course on Electronic Evidence

Organised by the Joint project of the European Union and Council of Europe iPROCEEDS-2, the Training of Trainers on Electronic Evidence expected to bring the magistrates and law practitioners to a basic and minimum understanding of how some technical procedures work in order to make the right decisions, to issue the right warrants and to render the right judgement. The training focused on technical nature of electronic evidence, its evidential value, the digital crime scene, the virtual investigative biotope and how to deal with that practically and legally.

The course was designed around a practical case scenario and it mainly focused on the admissibility of electronic evidence in front of the court with participants taking different roles for assessing, questioning and defending the evidence. The content of the training was tailored in such a manner to address to magistrates from the Western Balkans and Turkiye that  deliver judicial training courses on cybercrime or will deliver such courses at  domestic level.

The participants were highly engaged in the whole event and demonstrated an excellent understanding of the topics covered throughout the four days. A couple of examples of their commitment included the use of European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) listed cases during the mock courtroom that were not delivered during the event, their preparation of PowerPoint presentations to support arguments and counterarguments and the reference to much of the legal instructions related to the Budapest Convention on Cybercrime. Their understanding of electronic evidence was demonstrated through the cross-examination of an expert witness, where they demonstrated knowledge and understanding of the Council of Europe Electronic Evidence Guide.

The iPROCEEDS 2 project will continue to support the strengthening of the cybercrime and e-evidence knowledge of magistrates for ensuring the successful prosecutions and convictions.
