The applicant, Sanoma Uitgevers B.V., is a limited liability company, specialising in publishing and marketing magazines, incorporated under Dutch law and based in Hoofddorp (the Netherlands). Relying on Article 10 (freedom of expression), the company complained of having been compelled to hand over a CD-ROM that could reveal the identity of journalistic sources who, on the promise of anonymity, had provided information about an illegal street car race which had taken place in January 2002 and of which the publishing company had taken pictures. Having noted that, in principle a compulsory handover of journalistic material might have a chilling effect on the exercise of journalistic freedom of expression, the Court recalled that the domestic authorities were not prevented from balancing conflicting interests including by prosecuting crimes committed by persons who enjoyed the protection of journalistic privilege. The Court found in particular that the information contained on the CD-ROM, which the company had been obliged to hand over to the authorities, had been relevant and capable of identifying the perpetrators of other crimes investigated by the police, that the authorities had only used that information for those purposes, and held, by four votes to three, that there had been no violation of Article 10 in this case.
