Parliamentary questions
23 November 2017
E-007196-17
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 130
Miriam Dalli (S&D) , Birgit Sippel (S&D)

 Subject:  Cybercrime Convention: the Commission's efforts to defend fundamental rights
 Answer(s) 

In its resolution on the fight against cybercrime(1) adopted on 3 October 2017, Parliament raised concerns about the Council of Europe’s Cybercrime Convention Committee’s interpretation of Article 32 of the Budapest Convention, and more specifically its efforts to broaden the article’s scope.

In Article 78 of the resolution, Parliament affirms its opposition to any attempt by law enforcement authorities to remotely access servers and computers located in other jurisdictions without recourse to multilateral agreements and other judicial cooperation instruments.

In its role as observer to the committee, what initiatives is the Commission taking to ensure that Parliament’s position is integrated by the Member States and communicated to committee members and observers?
