Media Reporting on Suspected Criminal Offences in Germany

German Media Lawyers

Reporting on suspected offences in Germany adheres to strict principles, typically maintaining anonymity and refraining from identifying individuals not yet convicted. This approach stems from the legal presumption of innocence, safeguarding suspects’ rights until guilt is proven. Moreover, the general right to privacy shields individuals from unwarranted damage to their reputations. Failure to adhere to these principles can lead to legal consequences, including warnings, injunctions, or financial compensation. However, there are cases where the public has an interest in criminal offences, and the journalists and media have the essential role of informing them about them. Balancing these different interests can be a challenging aspect of such cases.
