Practical aspects of gathering digital evidence in investigations concerning the aggression on Ukraine

This presentation will explore the practice of gathering digital evidence in the procedural activities undertaken by the Polish, EU and other states’ authorities (e.g. Ukraine, Slovakia) in investigations concerning the current war in Ukraine. Such evidence is also gathered in cooperation with the ICC. In the frames of so many involved states and authorities the key question is to create a common network in order to gather digital evidence and cooperate effectively. The works concern i.a. the need to create and administer a mutual pattern for gathering of such evidence and a safe server in order to store it. The presentation will also try to assess the practical use and importance of new technologies and professionalization that could be seen in the field of international criminal justice on the Polish authorities’ activities in this case.
