Officials from the European Commission and U.S. Department of Justice began formal negotiations on an agreement to facilitate access to electronic evidence for criminal investigations between the two regions. "Criminals use fast, modern technologies to organise their crimes and cover up their evidence. We need to work together with our American partners to speed up the access of our law enforcement authorities to this evidence," European Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality Věra Jourová said in a statement. U.S. Attorney General William Barr also welcomed the negotiations in his own statement. The two sides agreed to conduct regulator negotiation rounds with the hope of reaching an agreement "as quickly as possible."
