JERSILD V.DENMARK PDF

Links: Bailii , Bailii Ratio: A journalist was wrongly convicted himself of spreading racial hatred by quoting racists in his material. Held: Freedom of expression is one of the essential foundations of a democratic society. The safeguards to be afforded to the press are of particular importance. Not only does the press have the task of imparting such information and ideas: the public also has a right to receive them. It is not for this court, nor for the national courts for that matter, to substitute their own views for those of the press as to what technique of reporting should be adopted by journalists.

Two months later, the same outlet aired an interview with three members of the Greenjackets, conducted by Danish journalist Jens Olaf Jersild.

The five-hour interview was shortened to a few minutes, throughout which the three young group members made derogatory statements about racial minorities and immigrants in Denmark and throughout the world. Accordingly, Jersild and Jensen were fined 1, and 2, Danish kroner, respectively, or, alternatively, five days imprisonment. The court asserted that Jersild and Jensen were aware of the racist attitudes of the Greenjackets and had incited the group members to air their views throughout the paid interview, during which the interviewers offered the Greenjackets beer.

In addition, the court noted that Jersild and Jensen had edited the interview purposefully and intentionally included a series of offensive statements that the producers then disseminated without any inclusion of alternative views throughout the program. Subsequent domestic appeals to this ruling were dismissed.
