Lebanon: EU-funded CyberSouth trained magistrates on electronic evidence
December 26, 2018
The Internal Security Forces set up a workshop with examples of crime scenes, offering Lebanese magistrates the possibility to experience the work of cybercrime investigators and forensic experts dealing with collection of electronic evidence. The workshop revealed to be very useful and encouraging for magistrates to learn about the investigative techniques and better understand the challenges which law enforcement officers are confronted with and to have a closer dialogue between police and magistrates.
Following the judicial training on cybercrime and electronic evidence that was held in Beirut in September 2018 under the framework of CyberSouth project, the Lebanese magistrates requested to have a practical training on handling electronic evidence in criminal cases.
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.
