Hungary signs cybercrime treaty

By EDRi · February 11, 2004

On 4 December 2003, Hungary became the fourth country (along with Albania,
Croatia and Estonia) to ratify the Cybercrime Convention. Lithuania is the
latest country to have signed the Convention (26 June 2003). All 15 EU
states have already signed it.

Hungary made an explicit reservation, reserving the right not to apply
Article 9, paragraph 2, sub-paragraph b. This means they
won’t consider a photo to be child pornography if the person depicted only
appears to be under 18, but is in fact older.

To enter into force, the Cybercrime Treaty only needs 1 more ratification
from a CoE country.
