Cybercrime Attacks in PNG and the Pacific under Judiciary's Scope

Cybercrime attacks in Pacific Island countries are now under scrutiny as judges and senior magistrates around the region meet in Port Moresby , Papua New Guinea this week  for a three-day conference.

Hosted by the Commonwealth Secretariat with the support from the UK government and the PNG Center for Judicial Excellence, the conference is aimed at building effective anti-cybercrime frameworks to tackle the different online abuses.

Head of Rule of Law Section at the Commonwealth Secretariat Dr Tawanda Hondora when welcoming the participants today said the conference will allow judicial officers to share experience on the types, trends, scale and impact of cybercrime in the region, exchange views on the best governance framework to mitigate this issue and identify legal and practical solutions to this issue.

Participants include senior judges, magistrates and judicial officers from Commonwealth countries as well as from the Pacific and the judiciary of PNG.

Chief Justice Sir Gibb Salika when welcoming the participants to PNG says the conference will equip them with more tools to address cybercrime as the world continues to advance with technology as an ever-present part of reality.

United Kingdom High Commissioner to PNG, His Excellency Keith Scott in his opening address says they not only aim to build frameworks but also establish practical intervention in mitigating the issue.

The conference started today and will end this Thursday.
