Abstract
On 26 June 2018 the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) delivered an interesting judgment in support of investigative journalism, criticising the Romanian authorities’ negligence in allowing leaks of secret sensitive military information. The ECtHR found that the criminal prosecution and measures taken against a journalist for disclosing classified information, that gave evidence of the leaks, violated the journalist’s right to freedom of expression as guaranteed under Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR).
