23.02.2017

 

Primus successfully represented the publishing house VESTI at court in their dispute with Gulam Mohammad Gulami, who had brought an action for the retraction of defamatory information and material compensation. In 2015 the publishing house VESTI published in their newspaper Vesti segodnya three articles which, in the plaintiff’s opinion, contained defamatory statements.

On February 21st, the court of first instance sustained the opinion of the publishing house VESTI that the action was unjustified and contradictory and should, therefore, be dismissed fully.

Vesti segodnya is a leading Russian-language daily newspaper in Latvia, which publishes articles covering politics, national economy, culture, education, social matters, etc.
