The e-Evidence proposal gives criminal investigation authorities in Europe the power to request data from internet service providers and platforms throughout the EU member states. This is particularly sensitive when data requested by an authority concerns a member of a protected profession. Journalists need to be able to protect their sources, and lawyers have to rely on the confidentiality of services they use when working with clients.
After the Parliament found its position in December, so-called trilogue negotiations between the Council, Parliament and Commission start on Wednesday 10 February 2021.
On the occasion of this first trilogue meeting, I am inviting experts from academia, civil society, and representatives from the press and legal professions to discuss the implications the proposal has in particular for protected professions, but also for individuals everywhere in Europe.
