Training in Due Legal Process and Digital Evidence in Belize

Belize, March 25, 2021. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime for Central America and the Caribbean (UNODC ROPAN), through the Global Programme on Cybercrime, delivered a training addressed to prosecutors, investigators and digital forensic analysts in legal aspects in the digital forensic process. This training took place from March 22 to 25, 2021.

The objective of this twelve-hour training was to develop the participants' skills to recognize what constitutes digital evidence, why it should be handled according to due process in the context of criminal investigations, as well as why it can be a determinant factor in the prosecution of a crime.

Several presentations were developed, such as basic concepts of digital evidence, the digital forensic process and the criminal law applied to cybercrime. 

In addition, the Belize Police Department gave a presentation about how the law is enforced in cyberspace, as well the tools at their disposal to achieve this purpose.

This training was made possible due to the funding from the Government of Canada to the UNODC Global Programme on Cybercrime.
