Abstract
The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) delivered a judgment in a case concerning the failure to protect two politicians’ dignity and reputation from attacks in a documentary film aired by several TV channels and also available on the Internet. By dismissing the complaints of the two politicians Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) has been violated, in particular because the domestic courts did not consider sufficiently the (lack of) factual basis of some of the serious accusations against the politicians.
Keywords
