PI and EFF's comments on the draft UN Cybercrime treaty (Chapter on International Cooperation)

Privacy International (PI) and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) provide observations and recommendations on the proposed consolidated negotiating document for the fifth session of the Ad Hoc Committee, which is due to consider the text in April 2023. Our submission covers provisions in the chapters related to the preamble and international cooperation of the proposed UN Cybercrime treaty (full title: comprehensive international convention on countering the use of information and communications technologies for criminal purposes.”) We also provide comments on Article 42 in the criminal procedural measures and law enforcement chapter discussed in the fourth session, as it is of significance to the international cooperation chapter.
