Protection of journalistic sources

Earlier today, the European Court of Human Rights held a public hearing to examine a complaint raising important issues related to the protection of media sources.

The chamber hearing in the case of Telegraaf Media Nederland Landelijke Media B.V. and Others v. the Netherlands (application no. 39315/06) can now be viewed online.

The Court has also produced a fact-sheet which lists the caselaw regarding the protection of journalistic sources. Court lawyer Michelle Lafferty complements the fact-sheet with a podcast on key complaints dealing with matters of privacy which the court has decided upon in recent years.
