UNODC Contributes to Strengthen the Capacities of Salvadoran Institutions Responsible of Fighting Cyber Crime against Children

UNODC developed, in collaboration with UNICEF, the School of Prosecution Training of the Republic of El Salvador and the International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (ICMEC), the Workshop: "Cybercrime: General Perspective and Comprehensive Care for Children and Adolescents", which took place on September 16 th, 2015, in the facilities of the School of Prosecution Training.

The workshop was conducted by Ms. Katia Dantas, Director of Public Policy for Latin America and The Caribbean (ICMEC), and Ms. Pilar Ramírez, Legal Advisor and Coordinator of the Program for Latin America and The Caribbean (ICMEC). In the workshop different crimes against children and adolescents were conceptually and legally defined considering international and national legislation. Additionally, an assessment was made on issues related to the investigation of these crimes and on matters to take into consideration in order to effectively present a case before court. The workshop concluded with a case study developed through a practical exercise performed by the participants.

The participants of the workshop were prosecutors from the Unit of Crimes Related to Childhood, Adolescence and Women in their Family Relation and the Unit of Specialized Care for Women, as well as law enforcement investigators.

With this activity UNODC strengthens its compromise of improving the capacities of Salvadoran State institutions responsible of countering cybercrime, through increasing their expertise and facilitating inter-institutional contacts.
