Tougher Cyber Crime Laws Approved

States Members have agreed to introduce new tougher laws to prosecute cybercriminals.

The changes were proposed by the Home Affairs Minister, Constable Len Norman, in October.

40 politicians voted in favour of the law reforms, and 0 against.

Police in Jersey will now be able to access suspects' computer systems with a court order, as they previously could for phone or financial records.

The existing Computer Misuse and Regulation of Investigatory Powers laws will be updated, and new changes brought in to allow better co-operation with law enforcement in other jurisdictions.
