A person identified in court papers as ‘Lina’ took photographs and video of a person identified as POI in a situation in which POI said they had a reasonable expectation of privacy.

POI won an injunction preventing the publication of the private information, having argued that the the publishing of the information would breach their rights to privacy as guaranteed by Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights (the Convention).

Mr Justice Tugendhat ruled in the High Court that Lina’s rights to publish information as guaranteed by the right to freedom of expression in Article 10 of the Convention were not as strong as POI’s rights under Article 8.
