The EU-funded CyberSouth project held two trainings in Jordan last month. The first training was dedicated to Jordanian legal framework on cybercrime and was held on 18 November in Amman. The meeting facilitated in depth discussions on the gaps of the current legislation on cybercrime and electronic evidence, as well as on the draft law. The meeting was attended by experts from High Judicial Council, Ministry of Justice, Public Security Department, General Intelligence Directorate and Jordan Armed Forces.
The second training focused on cybercrime and electronic evidence and took place on 19-22 November at the Judicial Institute of Jordan in Amman. The aim of this basic judicial training was to provide to civilian and military judges and prosecutors basic knowledge of aspects related to cybercrime investigations and collection of electronic evidence, and also to highlight the available instruments for international cooperation in the field of cybercrime.
A number of 20 magistrates have been trained during this course as future trainers for deployment of this course at national level to their peers.
