Abstract

The paper aims to assess the impact of the ECHR on the decisions of the Macedonian Constitutional Court in defamation cases involving a politician. It focuses upon the following questions: Does the Court refer to the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and the case law of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) in its decisions? Does it interpret the right to freedom of expression in the light of the Convention? In order to answer the questions, the paper analyses the defamation case law of the ECtHR developed under Article 10 of the ECHR (freedom of expression) and the decisions of the Macedonian Constitutional Court in defamation cases involving a politician (concrete disputes). The analysis shows that it is questionable whether the Constitutional Court seriously considers the defamation case law of the ECtHR.
