Abstract
The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) found a violation of the right to freedom of expression under Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), on account of the administrative offence proceedings and the resulting sanctions for disseminating on social media and on the packaging of condoms images deemed by the domestic courts in Georgia to be unethical advertising. The ECtHR found no demonstration of the existence of a pressing social need to interfere with the advertising and it considered the prioritisation of views on ethics of the members of the Georgian Orthodox Church unacceptable in the balancing of various values protected under the ECHR and the Constitution of Georgia.
