Nani Jansen Reventlow recently spoke to the ACtHPR Monitor about the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights handed down its first freedom of expression judgment

In December 2014, the African Court on Human and Peoples' Rights handed down its first freedom of expression judgment, finding that Burkinabé journalist Lohé Issa Konaté had been wrongfully imprisoned and fined for charges of criminal defamation. In June 2016, the Court awarded Mr Konaté reparations of around $70,000, only the second reparations award by the Court, and the biggest so far for any one individual. Associate Tenant Nani Jansen Reventlow represented Mr Konaté throughout his case alongside John Jones QC.
