After only two days from the Anticorruption National Day, we have talked
about the role of social networks inthe proccess of making the justice act
more transparent and especially, about ethical methods identified by
journalists by which to transmit in real time infromation from the law courts
while court cases are in process .
It was brought in discussion issues like the leak of infrmation from the ongoing files
or even fale information provided by people who control the media and wish to
influence the court process by making pressures for e specific solution.
A real interest was presented towards the instruments used by investiogation
journalists in their activity, including data bases, publci or not, created and updated
by their collegues journalists all around the world.
The three honored diplomats offered us both relevant examples and a vision about
the success model applied in their countries, concretly adapted to Romania’s actual
situation; these discussions included also references to MCV.
We thank everyone for their active participation and direct questions!
