Abstract
A recent decision by the ECtHR confirms that journalists who are found guilty of a criminal offence during newsgathering activities cannot invoke robust protection based on their rights to freedom of expression and information as guaranteed by Article 10 ECHR. After the decisions in the cases of Diamant Salihu and others v. Sweden (IRIS 2016-8/1), Brambilla and others v. Italy (IRIS 2016-9/1) and Boris Erdtmann v. Germany (IRIS 2016-9/1), this time the Court dismissed the complaint of an undercover TV journalist who was fined for using forged documents and giving false testimony in court in the context of proceedings concerning his placement in a refuge detention center on the Polish border.
