Judgments/Decisions 2017

MEO Expert Opinion of October 16, 2017 regarding the appeal of freelance journalist Tehmineh Yenokyan, who asked MEO to clarify: is it fair to accuse a journalist, if the video materials shot by him/her during public events are later used by law enforcement bodies for instituting a criminal case and serve as grounds for charges? Aren’t such accusations a violation of impartiality in journalism, and which are the ways to protect journalist from similar attacks? (Դիտորդ մարմնի 2017թ. հոկտեմբերի 16-ի փորձագիտական կարծիքը).
