Strasbourg, 15.10.2013 – The Council of Europe will set up a Programme Office on Cybercrime in Bucharest (Romania) to manage its global capacity building activities in this area.



A Memorandum of Understanding to this effect was signed today in Bucharest by Minister of Foreign Affairs of Romania Titus Corlăţean and Council of Europe Deputy Secretary General Gabriella Battaini-Dragoni.



Prime Minister Victor Ponta had made the offer to host such an office in Bucharest during meetings with the Council of Europe Secretary General Thorbjørn Jagland in March and April this year.



The international community has reached broad agreement on capacity building as an effective approach to address the challenge of cybercrime. The establishment of the Office will allow the Council of Europe to respond to growing requests for support in an effective manner.
