Deborah McCarthy will serve as the U.S. Representative and the U.S. lead negotiator during the negotiations.  The United States will continue to press for its priority cybercrime policy and legal objectives during these negotiations, including advancing efforts towards a fair, practical criminal justice instrument that respects rights and provides a modern electronic evidence framework built on consensus and informed by experts.
