GPD input to the Ad Hoc Committee on cybercrime

4 May 2022

The UN Third Committee’s Ad Hoc Committee on Cybercrime begins negotiations on a possible convention on cybercrime, beginning with discussions on the “Preamble and General Provisions, Criminalisation and Procedural Measures and Law Enforcement” chapters of the possible convention.

We appreciate the opportunity to provide our input to the discussions ahead of the first reading of these chapters, which will take place at AHC’s second substantive meeting at the end of May in Vienna.  In this response, we focus on recommendations to ensure that the convention respects, protects and promotes human rights.
