Good morning; quite so. As you know we argue, where appropriate, that decisions of this nature, touching on governance of Internet, should involve experts as is acknowledged in Tunis Agenda. Given the significant practical and day to day experience of operation of the Budapest Convention there were many who could have given expert advice.

" also took issue with the fact that the resolution was agreed upon before cybersecurity experts were able to weigh in.
″It is wrong to make a political decision on a new treaty before cybercrime experts can give their advice,” she said.
Both Chalet and the Finnish representative speaking on behalf of the European Union pointed out that the existing expert group on cybercrime was already discussing whether a new treaty was needed.
Human Rights Watch slammed the resolution, calling the list of its sponsors “a rogue’s gallery of some of the earth’s most repressive governments,” according to the South China Morning Post [scmp.com]<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.scmp.com_tech_big-2Dtech_article_3040841_china-2Dranks-2Dworst-2Dcountry-2Dcollecting-2Dusing-2Dand-2Dstoring-2Dbiometric-2Ddata&d=DwMFaQ&c=FmY1u3PJp6wrcrwll3mSVzgfkbPSS6sJms7xcl4I5cM&r=RrrXyaBfa00GH1liTedM3FwobVakuhJ-qs1N8-Ji8VE&m=BSLuzq4b-FW_zE502sz6Tu4U_6UGc7z5hlRrg5nuTwA&s=qZbofzl9wRSGT_LRVMexcMsmBGXlYPSvtawO-WnNx50&e=>."

What a thing to vote on during the holiday break!
The United Nations General Assembly on Friday approved a resolution that aims to create a new international convention on cybercrime.
The Russian-sponsored resolution was approved by a 79-60 vote with 33 abstentions, according to The Associated Press [apnews.com]<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__apnews.com_79c7986478e5f455f2b281b5c9ed2d15&d=DwMFaQ&c=FmY1u3PJp6wrcrwll3mSVzgfkbPSS6sJms7xcl4I5cM&r=RrrXyaBfa00GH1liTedM3FwobVakuhJ-qs1N8-Ji8VE&m=BSLuzq4b-FW_zE502sz6Tu4U_6UGc7z5hlRrg5nuTwA&s=_B6PJ9VrrVTX8EfawsXWuEN-Ik7NMaLaYm3TOh8jIME&e=>.
The resolution was approved over objections from both the European Union and the United States, as many fear language in the resolution will allow for crackdowns on expression.
