On 6 June 2014, the Dutch Ministry of Security and Justice published several ‘discussion documents’ about reforming Dutch criminal procedural law. Of particular interest to this blog post is the document relating to search and seizure(in Dutch). The authors of this discussion document suggest amending the legislation with regard to the search and seizure of data on computer systems. In the view of Jan Jaap Oerlemens, that is a very good idea considering the old-fashioned approach we now have towards search and seizure of computer systems.
