T&T hosts OAS cyber-crime workshop

Date: May 15, 2008

A three-day workshop on “Cyber-crime legislation in the Caribbean region” opened in Trinidad &Tobago yesterday, the joint initiative of the Organization of American States (OAS) and the United States Department of Justice.

The workshop is expected to draw participation from representatives from the following 14 OAS member states: Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, St. Kitts/Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent &the Grenadines, Suriname, and Trinidad &Tobago.

It is being organised as a follow-up to a recommendation from the fifth meeting of the Group of Governmental Experts on Cyber-Crime, which took place at OAS Headquarters in November 2007. The expert group comprises the working groups of the Meetings of Ministers of Justice or other Ministers or Attorneys General of the Americas (REMJA), and has received various mandates from REMJA, including on the identification of co-operation mechanisms to combat cyber-crime, and the completion of a diagnosis of national legislation, policies and practices on the subject.
