    Mehmed Halilović, the legal expert from Sarajevo, analyzes the decision of the Sarajevo Municipal Court in the case of a defamation lawsuit against the journalist of the Center for Investigative Reporting (CIN) for the needs of the BH Journalists Association and Free Media Help Line.

    The analysis states, inter alia: “The first instance verdict of the Sarajevo Municipal Court is an obvious example of the failure to understand the role of press / media in a democratic society guaranteed in the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms and protected in a series of judgments of the European Court for the Protection of Human Rights EC”.
