iPROCEEDS-2: third round of the online Specialised Judicial Training Course on International Cooperation
Electronic evidence in cases of offences against and by means of information technology is usually difficult to collect and relatively volatile. It is therefore crucial that, when investigating, prosecuting and adjudicating cybercrime and cybercrime related cases, parties to the Budapest Convention are prepared to employ a variety of international cooperation modalities available under the Convention in an efficient and timely manner.
Sustainable Judicial Training programmes on cybercrime, electronic evidence and seizing online crime proceeds are some of the most effective tools of ensuring that judges and prosecutors have sufficient knowledge to fulfil their roles effectively.
Considering that the primary purpose of international cooperation in cybercrime investigations is the preservation and production of admissible and reliable evidence that can be used in pre-trial and trial proceedings in criminal cases, the iPROCEEDS-2 project organised the third round of the online Specialised Judicial Training Course on International Cooperation to provide judges and prosecutors with updated knowledge on the importance of cooperation and coordination amongst different jurisdictions in combatting cybercrime and in the effective acquisition of digital evidence.
The training was conducted online on 4 – 6 October for Turkey and on 18 – 20 October for Serbia.
