>> Secretary General asking for meaningful civil society participation
>> in the development of the Cybercrime Convention’s Second Additional

>> For those who are not familiar with this process, the Council’s
>> Cybercrime Convention Committee (T-CY) has initiated a global process
>> to draft a second additional protocol to the Convention—a new text
>> which deals with cross-border access to data, including ways to

>> the Second Protocol to the Cybercrime Convention is ongoing, without
>> sufficient transparency nor meaningful civil society participation.
>> Join us on the letter and read more about the second additional
