In a bid to enable Magistrates of the Littoral Region better dispense justice in law courts especially on cases patterning to  cyber criminality, the National Agency for Information and Communication Technologies, ANTIC, groomed the legal practitioners on the subject during a two-day seminar in Douala, 04-05 May 2017.

In a keynote address at the opening ceremony, the Director General of ANTIC, Dr. Ebot Ebot Enaw underscored that the technical expertise of the Agency in the fight against  cyber criminality is at the service of the judiciary. He further noted that the seminar would provide judges and prosecutors with the level of knowledge required to deal with cybercrime and electronic evidence.




Presiding at the opening of the seminar, the President of the Littoral court of Appeal, Mr. Abel MINKO on behalf of the Minister of state, Minister of Justice and Keeper of the Seals, saluted the initiative taken by the management of ANTIC to sensitise magistrates on cyber criminality. Mr Minko noted that the seminar was timely because cyber criminality is increasingly  becoming a serious criminal issue in Cameroon.

The awareness raising campaign for magistrates which kicked-off last year in Yaounde will take ANTIC to all the ten regions of the country with a view to enabling magistrates and other actors of the judiciary better deal with cybercrimes.

This activity falls within the framework of ANTIC’s mission of securing the Cameroonian cyberspace, conferred to it by the 2010 law on cyber security and cyber criminality.
