Launching of the Cybercrime and Digital Evidence Forum of the Portuguese-Speaking Public Prosecution Services

14 Oct 2016

It was approved, during the XIV Meeting of Prosecutors Generals of the Portuguese-Speaking Countries, the establishment of the Cybercrime and Digital Evidence Forum. The decision was made by Prosecutors General of Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal, São Tome and Principe and Timor Leste, and also representatives of the Prosecution Service of Macau, which are gathered in Lisbon.

Behind the creation of this forum it was the recognition that language is one of the last frontiers of the Internet, hence the need to strengthen cooperation at this respect among countries sharing the same language.

The new structure aims at sharing information and knowledge and the exchange of experiences and good practices. All this, aiming to streamline cooperation between the several Prosecution Services, in order to increase capacity to fight cybercrime and improve efficiency in the collection, preservation and use of digital evidence.
