The Legality of SKY ECC Evidence: A Controversy Over Privacy and Fair Trials

After the roundtable discussion organized by the Lawyer's Academy of the Serbian Bar Association on the topic of SKY ECC communication as evidence in criminal proceedings, we summarize the key conclusions on an extremely relevant issue - SKY ECC hacking.

For those who are not familiar, data from the messaging encryption platform SKY ECC has recently been “intercepted” by the police in a somewhat unclear procedure. This has resulted not only in the arrest of many suspects but also in the media disclosure of the content of their exchanged messages, without any verification of their authenticity.

With the introduction of prosecutorial investigations and the burden of proof lying on the prosecution’s side, it is no longer sufficient to simply “know what happened.” What is “known” must be proven through subjective and material evidence.

JPM Partners Danilo Nikolić and Luka Nikolić are providing their expert take on this highly controversial situation that has sparked numerous debates.
