Download text in Bulgarian (PDF, 480 kb)

This is the latest joint publication of CiviLink Foundation and Coalition 2000, dedicated to problems which investigative journalists face, while revealing corruption cases and affairs.

The author, Krassimir Dobrev, is a well-known journalist and JD graduate. As a leading analyst of "Sega" Daily, Mr. Dobrev worked on several issues related to political corruption.

The author expresses an opinion, that the newly adopted Law on the Access to Public Information creates rather new obstacles for journalists, than to facilitate their efforts. There still exists a legal gap in defining such notions as "an official secret". In addition, the author reviews the major legal risks that journalists face. The book outlines his "practical advice to beginners" and how to avoid libel charges. The publication also contains some of the documents relevant to investigative journalism such as the full text of Recommendation No R (2000) 7 of the Council of Ministers to the Council of Europe. The book is designed for journalists, media law experts and politicians.
