The Justice Ministers of EU Member States have agreed on a new set of measures to improve criminal justice in cyberspace. The measures focus on three main work streams which include: the streamlining of mutual legal assistance proceedings, the launch of a reflection process on connecting factors for enforcement jurisdiction and improving cooperation with service providers through the development of a common framework in order to request specific categories of data. The EU Council has appealed to the European Commission to elaborate on these three work streams by June 2017.
