All assembly members,
On May 25th, the Council of Europe released the latest version
of its Draft Convention on Cybercrime, entitled "Version No.
27 Revised." It immediately met a hailstorm of criticism from
privacy advocates who say it lacks sufficient assurances of
privacy protection. The Draft will be submitted to the
European Committee on Crime Problems on June 18th and could be
ratified by member states by the end of 2001. The 113 page
treaty would set legal rules and guidelines for such things as
obtaining information from Internet Service Providers, tapping
and collecting Net traffic and content data, the extradition
of cybercriminals and international collaboration among law
enforcement authorities. Any state which ratifies the treaty
must amend its national laws to conform to the treaty. The
final draft treaty may be found at
