A national workshop, held on 27 October 2020, gathered the Moroccan stakeholders in charge of drafting and enforcing the legislation on cybercrime and electronic evidence.

Morocco has been part of the Budapest Convention since June 2018, and has benefited from the cybercrime capacity building support under the project Global Action on Cybercrime (GLACY) and its extension (GLACY +), being considered as a positive example on the development of its criminal justice capacities to fight against cybercrime.

This online workshop was an opportunity to introduce the procedural powers from the Budapest Convention on Cybercrime and to assess whether such legal tools were included in the existing and draft legislation of Morocco. The CyberSouth expert explained the benefits of having these legal instruments in place and emphasised important recommendations customised for Morocco.

Representatives from the General Directorate for National Security, the General Directorate of Territorial Surveillance, the Public Prosecutors’ Office, the Ministry of Justice, judges and prosecutors were among the participants.

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.
