Bishkek - In the framework of the project “Support to Strengthening Democracy through Electoral Reform in the Kyrgyz Republic” a round table on cybercrime and cybersecurity was held on 7 December 2018 in Bishkek.

Representatives of the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic including the State Security Council, the State Registration Service (SRS), the Ministry of the Interior, the General Prosecutor’s office and other national institutions, together with civil society representatives were provided with an opportunity to gain knowledge and share experiences about existing international standards in the field of cybersecurity and cybercrime. The round table served as a forum for sharing best practices from other countries in this field.

Covid-19 pandemic -
 
Emergency powers -
 What standards?

 


During the current Covid-19 pandemic, national governments are taking exceptional measures to slow down the spread of the virus. On numerous occasions, the Venice Commission examined the limits of such emergency powers. The Commission has consistently underlined that State security and public safety can only be effectively guaranteed in a democracy which fully respects the rule of law. Even in genuine cases of emergency situations, the rule of law must prevail.
