Cybercrime Legislation webinar


We are pleased to invite you to the upcoming joint COE and PILON Cybercrime Working Group webinar on “Cybercrime Legislation in the Pacific: Sharing Perspectives on Recent Progress.” The webinar will be held on Friday 5 August at 12pm Canberra time/2pm Tarawa time/3pm Nuku’alofa time.

The webinar will discuss recent progress in harmonising and updating legal frameworks on cybercrime and electronic evidence, in line with international standards (i.e., Budapest Convention) as a crucial milestone in equipping relevant authorities in the region to address cybercrime issues. We will hear from Kiribati and Tonga on the approach their country has taken, and the Council of Europe will also present on the impacts and benefits of acceding to the Budapest Convention, the accession process and further types of assistance the Council of Europe can extend to interested countries.




Domingo Kabunare (Kiribati Ministry of Information, Communications and Transport) is a Senior Information Analyst, responsible for the Government Cybersecurity policy, programmes, projects and other cybersecurity related activities.


Tupou K Vainikolo (Attorney General’s Office, Kingdom of Tonga) is a Crown Prosecutor in the Criminal Division. She is involved in the assessment and prosecution of indictable criminal offences, including criminal offences that are cyber-related. She assists the Attorney General in her involvement in national, regional and international matters related to cybercrime and cyber safety.


Catalina Stroe (Cybercrime Programme Office, Council of Europe) is programme manager of the Global Action on Cybercrime Extended (GLACY+), joint project of European Union and Council of Europe. The primary aim of the project is to strengthen the capacities of States worldwide to apply legislation on cybercrime and electronic evidence and enhance their abilities for effective international cooperation in this area, while ensuring compliance with international human rights standards and the rule of law.
Before joining Council of Europe, Catalina acted as a white collar crime defence attorney and for more than 15 years. She covered AML/CTF compliance matters, fraud and corruption prevention area, with extensive experience in various forensic projects.
