As part of the UNODC, UN Counter-Terrorism Executive Directorate and the International Association of Prosecutors, ‘Accessing Electronic Evidence Across Borders Project’, I attended Malaysia for a training workshop.
Along with presentations from representatives from Facebook and Uber, I lectured on the CLOUD Act, the proposed EU Rules on E-Evidence and application of model forms for emergency, preservation and direct requests for voluntary disclosure from Service Providers.
With representatives from Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Afghanistan, Indonesia, Pakistan, Japan, Laos, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Bhutan, Mauritius, South Korea and Japan this was an opportunity to test the functionality of the model forms for the project’s global Guide.
The forms passed the test of usability, and after amending to include suggestions for improvement from the Service Providers and representatives, we believe the forms will significantly assist practitioners to preserve and produce e-evidence.
I am now looking forward to more practical training around the world following the forthcoming launch of the Guide!
