Cybercrime Court

Ideas on the Establishment of an International Court for Cyber Crime

The existing legal resources for international criminal investigation and punishment of crimes in cyberspace are nowhere near adequate to keep up with the unbelievably rapid development of the Internet and the associated international criminal ingenuity. The establishment of an international criminal court for the prosecution of Internet crimes could wholly or partially reduce the criminals’ lead. The WCLF’s suggestions for the establishment of an International Court for Cybercrime start from the consideration that the Cybercrime Convention of the Council of Europe would provide a solid base for an international understanding on common action against serious cybercrimes. The WCLF has initiated a working group which advocates the attraction of further states to the Cybercrime Convention and simultaneously pursues the establishment of an International Court for Cybercrime by the Council of Europe.
