Television interview of minor without parental consent: violation
In Chamber judgment in the case of I.V.Ț. v. Romania (application no. 35582/15) the European Court of Human Rights held, unanimously, that there had been:
- a violation of Article 8 (right to respect for private and family life).
The case concerned a television interview a minor, without parental consent or adequate measures to protect her identity. The interview, which concerned the death of a schoolmate, had resulted in her being bullied and had caused her emotional stress.
The Court found in particular that the domestic appellate courts had only superficially balanced the question of the applicant’s right to private life and the broadcaster’s right to free expression, in particular that she had been a minor and had been interviewed without parental consent.
