Joint open Letter to the members of the JURI Committee from the Corporate Europe Observatory (CEO), The Medicines in Europe Forum (MiEF) and The International Society of Drug Bulletins (ISDB) calling on the members of the JURI Committee to ensure, through additional and more ambitious amendments, that both freedom of speech for journalists and their sources, including whistle-blowers, and access to regulatory and scientific data of public interest, are preserved.
Joint briefing paper
The proposed EU directive on the protection of trade secrets currently being studied by the European Parliament threatens freedom of speech for journalists and whistle-blowers, and access to scientific data of public interest.
The proposed trade secrets directive could obstruct recent EU developments on transparency and endangers freedom of information and expression of European citizens. A multi-sectoral NGO coalition calls for greater protections for consumers, journalists, whistleblowers, researchers and workers. Joint statement attached.
