e-evidence: EPC joins industry group calling on decision makers to protect fundamental rights

On 18 May, ahead of the trialogue negotiations on the e-evidence regulation, improving cross-border access to electronic evidences on 20 May, the European Publishers Council joined a versatile group of stakeholders to call on decision makers in the European Parliament and Council to protect fundamental rights in terms of e-evidence.


The signatories call for the the recognition of rules related to “freedom of the press and freedom of expression in other media” that should be recognised as a ground for refusal for the enforcement of an order, among other things.


Angela Mills Wade, our Executive Director said: We are joining this action to call for clarification that all journalistic activities are covered by immunities and privileges, which are key for ensuring the safety of journalists and their sources and eventually press freedom.”
