Procedural Aspects Of Cyber Crimes Investigation In Rwanda: A Comparative Study
Article by Kabano Jacques and Habarurema Jean Pierre
The use of internet technology has dramatically affected our ways of learning, communication and information sharing. The routine of daily use of social media makes it nearly impossible to conceive any illicit activity not having a cyber component. The multinational nature of Internet raises a dilemma for states wishing to apply their laws in the cyberspace. Individuals are increasingly involved in transactions that cross international territorial borders, which significantly reduces the ability of the state to exercise its authority to combat the consequences of these acts on its population. Within a comparative approach, this work basically focuses on the Rwandan law regarding the investigation of cybercrimes and procedures surrounding the collection of evidences in the Rwandan cyberspace.
