This hearing comes as part of the on-going legislative procedure on the proposed e-evidence package (Proposal for a Regulation on European Production and Preservation Orders for electronic evidence in criminal matters (2018/0108(COD) and Proposal for a Directive laying down harmonised rules on the appointment of legal representatives for the purpose of gathering evidence in criminal proceedings (2018/0107(COD)).
