The best practices in developing legislation designed to address crimes involving computers and the Internet were discussed at a three-day regional conference on cybercrime legislation, opened by US Ambassador to Malta Douglas Kmiec.

The conference, an initiative of the US Department of Justice, focused on cybercrime legislation for states in the Broader Middle East and Northern Africa. It was attended by government officials and law makers from seven regional countries – Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Lebanon, and Jordan and Malta. During workshops, the participants developed a framework for cybercrime and electronic evidence legislation based on the Budapest Convention on Cybercrime. The participants also had the opportunity to develop proposed revisions to the cybercrime legislation country profiles for their individual countries.
