OAS/REMJA AND THE UNITED STATES TO TRAIN JUDGES AND MAGISTRATES OF THE SOUTHERN CONE IN LEGAL COOPERATION AGAINST CYBERCRIME
From November 18 to 20, 2014, the OAS Department of Legal Cooperation of the Secretariat for Legal Affairs, together with the United States Department of Justice, through its Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section (CCIPS), will hold a Regional Cybercrime Training Workshop in Asuncion, Paraguay.
This workshop will provide training to Judges and Magistrates from Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay, with respect to, among others, the scope and context of international cyber crime standards and conventions, legal resources available, the handling of electronic evidence, procedural cyber crime legislation, and international cooperation in the fight against cyber crime. The workshop will also include a mock oral-trial proceeding demonstrating the important role of and admissibility of electronic evidence in criminal prosecutions.
This event in Paraguay is the 22nd workshop that will be held since 2004 under the framework of the OAS Cyber-Crime Training Program, in fulfillment of the recommendations adopted by the Working Group on Cybercrime of the REMJA process (Meetings of Ministers of Justice or Other Ministers or Attorneys General of the Americas).
In addition, this workshop will be the first in a series of events provided by the OAS Cyber-Crime Training Program that will be specifically directed to Judges and Magistrates in the OAS Member States. In this sense, similar workshops will be held in 2015 for the Andean-Region, Central America, and the Caribbean, respectively, among others.
