LOST IN NOTIFICATION? PROTECTIVE LOGIC AS COMPARED TO EFFICIENCY IN THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT’S E-EVIDENCE DRAFT REPORT

on the January 22, 2020

In his new study Professor Theodore Christakis, Co-Director of the Grenoble Alpes Data Institute, offers a detailed analysis of the EU Parliament’s new Draft Report on E-Evidence.
This is a very important period for the making of legal regimes for cross border access to digital evidence. Evidence of crimes used to exist locally; today e-evidence, essential in investigating crimes, is often stored in a different jurisdiction. In November 2019 an important development took place at the EU:  the European Parliament’s Rapporteur MEP Birgit Sippel released her draft Report on the E-Evidence draft Regulation. This Report is today under discussion at the European Parliament. In his new study published with the Cross Border Data Forum Professor Theodore Christakis, Co-Director of the Grenoble Alpes Data Institute, offers a detailed analysis of this Report and assesses the extent to which the legal regime proposed by the Rapporteur could strike the right balance between necessary human rights protections and the efficiency sought by Law Enforcement Agencies.
