Abstract
In a judgment of 20 February 2024 the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) found a violation by Turkey of a citizen’s right to freedom of expression under Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). This time the reason was not because of criticizing the government’s policy or the alleged support of or incitement to terrorism. The applicant in Dede v. Turkey was dismissed from his job because he had criticized in a professional email the management style and practices of the chairman (H.K.) of the board of directors of Takasbank’s main shareholder. The Court’s judgment confirms the horizontal effect of the application of Article 10 ECHR in the employment relationship. It also confirms the state’s responsibility in upholding interferences with the (online) right to freedom of expression of employees.
