EU: Secret negotiations on e-evidence: Council and Parliament positions side-by-side

The Council of the EU and the European Parliament will soon begin negotiations on "e-evidence" legislation, the aim of which is to simplify law enforcement authorities' ability to access data held by digital service providers in another national jurisdiction. A preparatory document produced by the Council, published here by Statewatch, shows the differences between the two institutions' positions.


The proposed rules are divided between a Regulation and a Directive, although the Parliament would prefer to scrap the Directive and include everything in a Regulation.
