MEPs want legally sound solutions for obtaining cross border e-evidence

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 10 dicembre 2020

MEPs backed with amendments two legislative proposals to simplify the existing procedures for obtaining electronic evidence with cross border elements for law enforcement and judicial authorities in criminal investigations and prosecution.The European Production Order or Preservation Order (Orders) will be used by judges and prosecutors to obtain electronic information from service providers in cross-border criminal investigations when searching for subscriber data and IP addresses or traffic and content data.Under the draft legislation, orders to produce subscriber data and IP addresses for the sole purpose of identifying the person could be issued for any criminal offence and should be addressed directly to the service provider and simultaneously to executing authority and executed within 10 days or in emergency cases within 16 hours.But orders for access to traffic and content data should be subject to stricter requirements and only issued for criminal offences punishable in the issuing state by a prison sentence of at least 3 years. This stricter requirements would not apply for offences committed exclusively online, notably for cybercrimes, terrorism related offences or sexual abuse of children online.Executing authorities will have 10 days to decide if they want to raise any objections to the orders received. If no objection is raised within the time limit, the order can be executed.MEPs demand that if the issuing state of an order regarding traffic and content data is subject to an Article 7 TEU procedure, the service provider should transmit the requested data only after receiving written approval from the executing authority.
