Abstract
A lack of respect for the right to privacy, combined with an apparent negligence of the tenets of responsible journalism can be pertinent reasons to justify an interference with journalistic reporting as protected by Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). In Rodina v. Latvia the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) found a violation of Article 8 (right to privacy) ECHR because the Latvian courts have not sufficiently protected a doctor’s family life and her good name and reputation, after she had been exposed by a newspaper and a TV-station as part of a family scandal, without public interest involved.
Keywords
