EVIDENCE2e-CODEX Deliverable D2.3 ‘Report on data protection and other fundamental rights issues’ is now ready!

The report examines how data protection implications in European Investigation Orders (EIOs) and Mutual Legal Assistance (MLA) procedures are being handled, highlighting recent legislative developments in the EU and the potential implications of the Regulation on European Production and Preservation Orders for electronic evidence in criminal matters on current electronic evidence exchange procedures. The report goes on to identify the legal and operational measures which need to be put in place to ensure adequate respect to data protection rights, with particular reference to instances of electronic evidence transfer. Moreover, the report also examines the other fundamental rights, which are both directly and implicitly referred to in the Directive 2014/41/EU (‘the EIO Directive’), and how they are being handled in other EU Member States.
