Civil Society Organisations write to Commissioner Jourová on SLAPP lawsuits

Posted on the 27/01/20

27 Civil Society Organisations, including the EHF, sent a letter to Vice President of the European Commission for Values and Transparency Věra Jourová calling on her to include all those impacted by SLAPP lawsuits in proposed new legislation.

SLAPPs are used to silence those who play a watchdog role and hold positions of power accountable.
