Final Session of the Ad Hoc Committee Concludes with Progress Towards an International Convention on Cybercrime

The 20th and final meeting of the Ad Hoc Committee's concluding session was held to finalise a comprehensive international convention to counter the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) for criminal purposes. The session was led by a distinguished female chairperson, who was widely commended for her leadership and dedication to the process. The rapporteur, Mr. Harditya Suryawanto, presented a procedural draft report, which documented the committee's processes and decisions without a substantive summary of deliberations. Delegates were invited to inform the Secretariat of any omissions and submit editorial corrections via email post-session.

Throughout the session, delegates from various nations, including Mexico, Brazil, China, the European Union, and others, expressed gratitude for the progress made over the ten days of negotiations. They acknowledged the Chair, the Secretariat, and the vice-chairs for their tireless efforts. Despite the progress, it was recognized that further work was needed to achieve consensus. Delegates underscored the importance of not rushing the process to ensure the convention has universal support and adequately addresses the needs of victims of cybercrime.

The need for inclusivity and stakeholder participation was emphasized, with many delegates highlighting the importance of involving all stakeholders, including civil society, in the negotiation process to ensure a comprehensive and effective convention. The draft report of the session was adopted, and there was a sense of optimism that consensus was within reach. Delegates expressed a collective commitment to combating cybercrime while preserving human rights.

The Chair encouraged delegates to focus on the essentials and avoid lengthy statements to expedite the process. She also recognized the financial and moral support provided by countries such as China and the United States, which was instrumental in the committee's work. Additionally, she thanked the African group for its consistent support from the beginning and throughout the two challenging years of the committee's existence.

In conclusion, the session ended with a sense of accomplishment for the work done and a hopeful outlook for the future. The committee's work is set to continue, with the aim of reaching a consensus on a convention that effectively addresses the global challenge of cybercrime. The Chair closed the session with heartfelt thanks to all participants, including the interpreters, and wished everyone a safe journey home.
