Abstract
In Szurovecz v. Hungary the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) has held that a refusal to grant a journalist access to an asylum seeker reception centre in Hungary violated his right to freedom of expression under Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). The ECtHR emphasized that newsgathering, including first-hand observation by a journalist reporting on a matter of significant public interest, is an essential part of journalistic research and press freedom.
