Analysis of Specific Judgments Relating to Defamation

Written by: Dejan Lučka

BH journalists association and media law expert Dejan Lučka prepared an analysis of several verdicts for defamation that were brought against journalists and the media in civil proceedings. Also, the analysis contains an appendix related to the criminalization of defamation, taking into account the consequences that this legal amendment will have on the freedom of expression and the work of journalists in the Republic of Srpska, but also in the whole of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

This analysis was done with the support of the US Government as part of USAID’s program to support independent media in Bosnia and Herzegovina (MEA), which is carried out by Internews in partnership with FHI360 and local partners.

The creation and publication of this analysis was made possible thanks to the generous support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
