Palestinian delegation studied Economic and Cyber-Crime investigation in Denmark

With the purpose of being introduced to the Danish criminal investigation procedure relating to digital evidence and cyber-crimes, a delegation from the Specialized Economic and Cyber-Crime Units of the Palestinian Attorney General’s Office has completed a study trip to Copenhagen, Denmark.

The study trip included visits to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions and the Serious Economic Crime Unit at the Copenhagen Police Department in order to exchange views on the investigation and prosecution of major economic crimes, including in particular the seizure and presentation of large amounts of electronic evidence.

To further explore issues related to cyber-crime, the delegation spent a full day at National Cyber Crime Centre (NC3) of the Danish National Police and held a session with a specialized prosecutor on the investigation and prosecution of cyber-crime cases. Additionally, the delegation visited two different court sessions at Copenhagen City Court.

The Palestinian delegation consisted of four prosecutors and was led by Chief Prosecutor Alaa al-Tamimi from the Specialized Economic Crime Unit. The three-day study trip, organized by EUPOL COPPS, took place from 4 to 6 March 2019.
