> General asking for meaningful civil society participation in the

> 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 improve MLATs according to
> their Terms of Reference[1]. The work on 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 protocol
