More news about the topic
UNODC supports Member States with improving their capacity to manage e-evidence with a series of technical tools, training, mentoring services, and networking of relevant authorities. At the centre of this work is the SHERLOC Electronic-Evidence Hub (EEH), a brand-new one-stop window which encompasses jurisprudence and national laws relevant to electronic evidence, as well as all the practical resources developed by the Global Initiative, in cooperation with experts and practitioners and communication service providers.
The EEH includes model forms on preservation and disclosure of data; model requests for mutual legal assistance of stored electronic evidence and/or real-time collection of traffic data; and a Data Disclosure Framework that outlines practices developed by international service providers in responding to overseas requests for data.
ELECTRONIC EVIDENCE TOOLS The Hub also hosts the password-protected Practical Guide for Requesting Electronic Evidence Across Borders, which was updated in 2021 with additional practical information and the expanded mapping of the contact details and legal requests policies of service providers. The Practical Guide is a step-by-step handbook for criminal justice officials to effectively obtain and utilize vital electronic evidence. It provides practitioners with best practice from experts in the field, legal procedures from States, and contact points to assist practitioners on how to request and produce the electronic evidence needed for trial.
