iPROCEEDS: Legal Reflections on 24/7 Point of Contact and Preservation Requests in Turkey

Istanbul, Turkey , 

To increase awareness of the national stakeholders on the National 24/7 Point of Contact and create intellectual resources for future harmonisation of the Turkish law with the Convention, police, judges, prosecutors, officials of the Ministry of Justice, access providers and hosting service providers, as well as representatives of academia were invited to the workshop “Legal Reflections on 24/7 Point of Contact and Preservation Requests”, held in Istanbul on 15-16 April 2019.

The meeting was organised with the support of the Joint Project of the European Union and the Council of Europe on targeting crime proceeds on the Internet in South Eastern Europe and Turkey - iPROCEEDS.

As a result, the Cybercrime Department of the Turkish National Police prepared a report available both in Turkish and English, aiming at contributing to the discussions of National 24/7 Points of Contact from other countries engaged in similar efforts and inspire academic discussions as well as potential legislative changes in Turkey.
