The Ministry regards the citizens’ and media’s entitlement to information as a matter with significant importance, which is to be fulfilled within the limits of the statutory provisions.
Actively pursued public relations with the public and media aim to enhance the public’s understanding of jurisdiction and serve to create trust in the judiciary, with its institutions and decisions.
The media’s entitlement to information may sometimes collide with certain principles, rights, or legally safeguarded interests. These include the presumption of innocence, the parties’ and process participants’ personality rights, the obligation to conduct fair and uninfluenced judicial proceedings, as well as the general concern of maintaining an independent and objective jurisdiction. It lies in the nature of public relations to maintain a balance between these conflicting interests and constitutionally protected rights in a manner complying with the rule of law.
