In order to increase awareness of the national stakeholders on the National 24/7 Point of Contact and create intellectual resources for future harmonisation of the Turkish law with the Convention; judges, prosecutors, officials of the Ministry of Justice, access providers and hosting service providers, as well as representatives of academia have been invited to the workshop “Legal Refections on 24/7 Point of Contact and Preservation Requests” that was held in Istanbul on 15-16 April 2019. The meeting was partially funded by the Joint Project of the European Union and the Council of Europe on targeting crime proceeds on the Internet in South Eastern Europe and Turkey – iPROCEEDS.2 Before the event, 18 questions and scenarios were disseminated to participants who had to refect and compile answers. These were prepared based on the vast experience of the National 24/7 Point of Contact and at the same time, refect the current developments related to combatting cybercrime discussed worldwide. The unoffcial Turkish translation of the Convention’s Explanatory Report has been sent to participants.
