freedom of information, state secrets, secret of investigation, private life


The freedom of expression and information is guaranteed by Article 10 of the European Convention of Human Rights and also by many other international conventions and national constitutions. This freedom is not without limits and the limits are imposed where it affects the the rights of other subjects and state secrets. This paper aims to treat the legal limitations of the jurnalisme. It aims to give an answer to these questions; Does the right of information has limits? How this right is limited? Which is the report between public information and the state secrets? Which is the report between information and the protection of the secret during a criminal investigation? Which is the report between information and private life? For giving an answer to those questions, we will look mostly the international law, using the analytic and synthetic methods.
