Subject: Freedom of expression. The Court considered that the Turkish authorities had not taken sufficient account of the public’s right to be informed, through various sources, about the situation in south-eastern Turkey. It further observed that the effect of suspending the applicants’ sentences had been partial censorship of the applicants’ activities and a restriction of their freedom to criticise.
