On April 27, I&JPN Executive Director Bertrand de la Chapelle and Policy Manager Ajith Francis presented the I&JPN Toolkit on Cross-border Access to Electronic Evidence to the Brazilian Federal Prosecution Service (Ministério Público Federal, MPF).

The MPF is the Brazilian body of independent public prosecutors at the federal level. It operates independently from the three branches of government with the mandate to uphold the law, the democratic regime and social and fundamental rights. The MPF is also responsible to fight and investigate cybercrime, an attribution supported by its Advisory Group on Cybercrime. 

The I&JPN Toolkit on Cross-border Access to Electronic Evidence outlines the ways in which data flows and privacy can be reconciled with lawful access requirements to address crime. The Toolkit intends to inform public, private and civil society actors in their own activities and interactions in developing and implementing practices and regimes for cross-border access to electronic evidence.

The Toolkit is the result of broad consultations with key policy actors since the 1st Global Conference of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network in  2016, and the tireless work of governments, companies, international organizations, civil society, technical operators, and academics who have collaborated to develop interoperable solutions to Cross-border Access to Electronic Evidence.

The Toolkit would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of I&JPN Data & Jurisdiction Program Contact Group Members. The I&JPN Secretariat is immensely grateful for the hard work of stakeholders. (Meet the Members here).
