Under the framework of EU-funded Cybersouth project the working group in charge of developing a manual on cybercrime and electronic evidence for Algerian magistrates held its second meeting on 17-18 February in Algiers, Algeria. The meeting was organised jointly with the Algerian Ministry of Justice and aimed at assessing the current work in order to facilitate the integration into the initial course for student magistrates and the elaboration of the basic and advanced module on cybercrime and electronic evidence for continuous judicial training.
A third working group meeting will be held in the upcoming period and will be dedicated to finalising the advanced course on cybercrime and electronic evidence for initial and continuous judicial training.
Besides, the second meeting of the working group in charge of developing the basic Jordanian course on cybercrime and electronic evidence dedicated to magistrates was held on 19-20 February in Amman, Jordan. The meeting was supported by the Council of Europe in the framework of the CyberSouth project. The Jordanian delegates have worked together with the international experts to align the national requirements with the international standards on cybercrime and e-evidence.
