Freedom of expression and publications. Applications of the principle in the publication of an article reporting the declarations made by a terrorist organization.
Art. 10 ECHR
Art. 6 ECHR
The Court finds that there is a violation of art. 10 of the Convention (right to freedom of expression) in the conviction of the chief heads of a magazine, responsible for publishing an article containing the declarations of an armed illegal organization. In the present case, there is a violation because the declarations are not deemed to incite violence but rather relate to the requests advanced by the organization to achieve negotiations with the Government.
