prosecutors sometimes convene press conferences to announce their
future steps in criminal investigations. The internet has become a
forum to exchange opinions, hints and often ‘anticipatory judgements’.
Transcripts of telephone conversations that were part of criminal files
have been published on the internet and by newspapers even if they
are clearly of a private nature and irrelevant to the case at issue.
How are investigating authorities, judges and courts influenced by
these factors? How is media attention likely to affect the outcome
of a trial? How are privacy and confidentiality affected? How should
documents which have been obtained through channels such as
Wikileaks be treated? What are the fair limits of use of the media so as
to be consistent with ethical principles and legal rules both for judges
and lawyers?
