Cyber-crime, Electronic Evidence Workshop to help implement its legal frameworkView(s):
Council of Europe Convention on Cyber-crime and the ICT Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA) will host a capacity building workshop on Cyber-crime and Electronic Evidence, specifically for law-enforcement officials, prosecutors and judges, on October 4 and 5.
ICTA Legal Advisor Jayantha Fernando said South Asian countries such as Sri Lanka and India have adopted a comprehensive legal framework on cyber-crime based on the Council of Europe Convention on Cyber-crime, and implementing these laws are a challenge to law-enforcement officers, prosecutors and judges.
He said the Council of Europe has also developed several concepts and materials that could help Sri Lanka and other countries increase the capacities of their criminal justice authorities.
These include electronic evidence guide (for law enforcement, prosecutors, judges), (2) 1st respondents training pack (for law enforcement), basic judicial training course (for prosecutors and judges) and advanced judicial training course (for prosecutors and judges).
The workshop will also feature a round table discussion for decision-makers on the benefits of the Budapest Convention on Cyber-crime.comments powered by Disqus
