During the war, Azerbaijan targeted journalists. The case is at ECtHR


On March 26 Media Defence filed a case at the Strasbourg court on behalf of four Armenian citizens following the bombing of the town of Martuni by Azerbaijani forces during the recent armed conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh. The applicants - three journalists who were injured and the brother of a journalist fixer who was killed - allege that as a result of this attack their rights under the European Convention on Human Rights were violated by Azerbaijan.

On March 30 Media Center online discussion was on this topic. Armenian lawyer and president of the Freedom of Information Centre Shushan Doydoyan and Media Defence Legal Director Padraig Hughes and Media Defence Senior Legal Officer Carlos Gai presented the case and talk about the security of media professionals working in conflict zones.
