The EU-supported first meetings of the working groups in charge of developing a manual on cybercrime and electronic evidence for Tunisian and Algerian magistrates were held respectively on 10-14 June in Tunis and on 16-20 June in Algiers.
The meeting in Tunisia aimed at discussing the details of the manual and its dissemination. The working group is composed of some of the most experienced magistrates who took part in the training courses on cybercrime and electronic evidence, initial and advanced, delivered within the framework of CyberSouth project in November 2018 and February 2019.
The Algerian meeting resulted in improving the current outline of the module on cybercrime integrated in the initial course for student magistrates and in the elaboration of the detailed outline of the basic and advanced module on cybercrime and electronic evidence for continuous training.
A second meeting will be held in autumn 2019 in both countries and will be dedicated to reviewing and finalising the first draft of the domestic manual on cybercrime and electronic evidence.
CyberSouth is a joint project of the European Union and the Council of Europe. It contributes to the prevention and control of cybercrime and other offences involving electronic evidence in the region of the Southern Neighbourhood, in line with international human rights and rule of law standards and good practices.
